  • “Lenz” Riesling 2016, Fred Loimer, Kamptal, 11.5% vol, 75cl

    “Lenz” Riesling 2016, Fred Loimer, Kamptal, 11.5% vol, 75cl

    AUST01

    Fred Loimer owns 60 hectares around Langenlois, in the sunny Kamptal region of Lower Austria. Unlike many Austrian producers who go for an overly rich and sweet style, Fred gets full ripeness in the vineyard yet ferments to dryness, managing to produce wines with lovely definition, zest and balance on the palate.

     

    Situated 200-400 metres above sea level, the climate of the Kamp Valley is characterised by cool nights and warm days, with a long, sunny autumn. The high summer temperatures are mitigated by the River Danube. Its long growing season and the difference in temperature between night and day, gives the grapes a chance to reach full ripeness and develop fine perfumes and flavours.

     

    The grapes were hand harvested and brought to the cellar where they were either whole-bunch pressed or crushed and then macerated for 4 to 24 hours, which helps to release more flavour. After careful fermentation at 20°C for 2 to 4 weeks, Lenz was matured on its fine lees in steel tanks for four months before bottling – this helps to maximise its freshness and primary flavours.

    Bright lemon yellow in appearance, the fruity nose is youthful with juicy white peaches. Light-bodied and crisp with lovely tension on the palate, this Riesling has mouth-watering acidity and clean fruit flavours. Perfect as an aperitif.
