Loimer Loiserberg Grüner Veltliner Kamptal 2019 12.5% 750ml

Fruit was selectively harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed before undergoing spontaneous fermentation in big used oak barrels for 4-8 weeks in stainless steel tanks.

Fred Loimer studied winemaking at Klosterneuburg and worked in Germany’s Nahe and the Schug winery in California before returning in 1997 to his family’s estate in Langenlois within the greater Kamptal area. A year later Fred purchased the former cellar of the Haindorf Castle on top of which he constructed a modern black cube symbolizing his love for modern elegance, reflected in his wines. In the vineyard Fred follows a high density regime (6000 vines per hectare) to contain yields. The vines are trained low but the canopies allowed to grow high. In the cellar Fred relies on spontaneous fermentation and extended time on lees but says he works without a standard ‘recipe’ in order to be free to adapt from year to year, and from grape to grape. Fred began practicing biodynamics in 2006 and is a founding member of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria.
