Critic Reviews
94 points, James Suckling
“Full nose of caramelized peach and cooked mirabelle with delicate baking-spice notes. Quite a rich wine for the challenging vintage, with a serious tannin structure that’s now integrating well. Imposing, moderately dry finish with some wild-herb character. Built for the long term. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold.“

About The Winery
Renowned Austrian winemaker Fred Loimer comes from a long-established Langenlois winegrowing family - where Fred was involved in winemaking from a young age. The Loimer winery resides on 70 hectares (172 acres) in Langenlois, the capital of the Kamptal winegrowing region of Austria, located in the northeast part of the country. In 1998 Fred took over the winery from his father and was ready to follow his path, outside of the traditional, long-standing ways. Two years later, he built a new winery, a minimalist black cube on a 150-year-old, hand-dug loess cellar in Langenlois - thus adding new spice to the charming local Kellergassen, or cellar streets. Within the Kamptal region, Fred Loimer has five vineyards (Loiserberg, Käferberg, Seeberg, Steinmassl, and Heiligenstein) where he grows Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Zweigelt used for his single varietal and blended wines. In 2006 the winery began its transition to practicing biodynamics. Eventually, Fred Loimer became one of the founding members of Respekt-Biodyn, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria. Today, the Loimer Winery is among one of the most respected Austrian wineries on the international stage.
