More information on wine critics and ratings

Loiserberg is situated to the far west of the Kamptal, with vineyards rising up to 380 meters. Quite exposed to the south-west one finds our “Berg Vogelsang”, maybe the coolest and scarcest primary rock site of the area. Ried Loiserberg is a neighboring south to southeast facing slope, less exposed to the winds. The soil stems from primary rock geologically defined as “zoisite-amphibolite”, a kind of decomposing granite or “paragneiss” or mica-schist, under some clay, loess or sometimes non-calcareous brown-earth.

As with the Berg Vogelsang, the grapes are harvested when they are physiologically ripe, from midst to end of October. The wine is fermented at a moderate 15 to 20° C before being racked into large wooden casks for further maturing. Actually, the main difference to Berg Vogelsang is the exposition also responsible for a slightly higher soil fertility and a marginally warmer, more protected microclimate.

Tasting Note: Delicate bouquet of pome and stone fruit enriched by flowery aspects (acacia) with a whiff of spice and yeast, dry, refreshing and stimulating, very sappy and well bodied with frequent joyful bursts of fruit flavor, perfectly balanced, as it also shows a strong backbone and good length.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2017)
This is a really sophisticated 2017 Grüner Veltliner that's more open than many of the top wines of the vintage.

A rich and still juvenile bouquet of hay & honey blossoms, melon, yellow fruit with subtle exotic tones, as well as apple and citrus peel, followed by a whiff of peppery and toasty spice, at first fresh and dry but very sappy, with a creamy texture, almost rich, very complex and detailed, i.e. blossom honey, freshly cut citrus, apple and stone fruit, nicely contoured & firmly interwoven, with a long and spicy finish.

Citrus peel, white flowers, stone fruit and gooseberry dominate the graceful aromatic arc, delicate and bright fruit nuances on the palate, dry, fresh and pure with more yellow fruit and great acidity to match leading to a mineral and slightly spicy finish.

A deep fragrance of passion fruit, yuzu citrus and peppermint radiates freshness and vitality and yet immediately drives deep. Highly elegant and distinguished, full of fruit charm and esprit, fills the mouth with bright aromas. Focused and complex all the way into the long finish. Extraordinary ageing potential.

Draws a broad arc that leads from hazel leaves over fully ripe apricot to bergamot orange. Crystal clear and multi-layered, very distinguished and with deep intensity that is still difficult to grasp. Chocolatey fullness and slowly fading oak tannins, but despite all its strength, finesse always sets the tone. A Grüner Veltliner that inspires dreams but shall require time.

Planeta Frappato Vittoria 2018
A rare and exclusive grape variety cultivated on only a few hectares, it is best expressed in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasant red wine as few others, a perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation.
