Loimer Lois Grüner Veltliner 2016
|Region||Austria, Niederösterreich, Kamptal|
Wine EnthusiastRipe notions of yellow Mirabelle plum make for a friendly, inviting opening. Lemony freshness persists on the palate where it is joined by spicy white pepper and a savory, salty undertone of yeast. This is refreshing, light and moreish.
Wine AdvocateFrom one of the coolest spots in the Kamptal, on crystalline soils, Loimer's 2016 Langenlois Grüner Veltliner Ried Loiserberg exhibits a golden-yellow color and a pure, fresh and spicy/yeasty bouquet with piquant lemon and stony aromas. Juicy, piquant and structured on the palate with aromatic, charmingly ripe and round fruit as well as fine tannins (12 hours of maceration prior to the pressing), this is an intense and persistent Grüner Veltliner with a long, complex and fresh finish. The bitterness and the grip are absolutely stimulating, especially with roast chicken and green salad served with pumpkin seed oil. The Loiserberg was fermented in used oak vats and stainless steel and aged on the full lees for four months, plus another two months on the fine lees.
