Loimer's salmon-colored NV Brut Rosé Reserve, bottled in August 2017 and disgorged in July 2019, offers a pure and fresh yet intense and concentrated bouquet of red fruits (raspberries, strawberries, sweet cherries) and floral aromas. Lush, intense and round but dry (dosage: three grams per liter) and fresh, with delicate grip and stimulating salinity, this is a brilliant rose.
Vivid notes of Red Delicious apples fill the nose with their fresh mellowness. The palate adds a salty, yeasty undertone that swings well with the inherent freshness and dryness. The foam is still lively but speaks of smoothness and yeast in all its creaminess. This is fresh and mellow at the same time, serious and frivolous. The finish is wonderfully dry.
A very dry, fresh sparkling wine with lemon and lightly unripe strawberry character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine bubbles and a dry finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
Fred Loimer started working with his father Alfred in 1988 after completing his studies at Klosterneuburg with stints at Germany’s Nahe and Walter Schug winery in California. Fred took full control of his family’s estate in 1997 and purchased the cellar of the Haindorf Castle on the outskirts of Langenlois. He then constructed a hyper-modern black cube on top of the old cellar symbolizing his aesthetic for modern elegance. Fred began practicing biodynamics in 2006 and is a founding member of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria. His wines are among the very best examples of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling in the Kamptal. In 2002, he was named “Winemaker of the Year” by Austria's Falstaff wine magazine.
