Winemaker's Notes:

Lively aromas and flavors of fresh apples and citrus lead to a hint of cassis and a touch of spiciness on the finish. Notes of exotic fruit and refreshing acidity, a hallmark of the Kamptal, make LOIS an ideal wine drinking experience anytime. 2009 celebrates the 10th vintage of LOIS.

An ideal apértif or the perfect pairing with fried chicken, sushi and spicy Asian cuisine, or fresh seafood and vegetables.

My Notes:

About Loimer:

Sustainability without sacrifice – one doesn't have to give up or do without something in order to live and to work sustainably. This is the philosophy that Fred Loimer lives by. He is a happy up-beat person who enjoys life, who's hungry for life, and is always keen to learn. He also is extremely concerned about quality, and he doesn´t leave anything to chance. And all of this is reflected in his wines. Loimer wines convey a zest for life and uncomplicated pleasure. Sip by sip, they reveal multilayered structure and depth.
