A slightly restrained nose with aromas of pure stone fruit and vineyard herbs. The Riesling is youthful, with a beautiful fresh burst of acidity in the mouth. Full bodied yet balanced, there is power through great fruit concentration before an indulgent and lingering finish.

Vineyards:

Situated 200-400 metres above sea level, 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 and the Waldviertel (forested area). Its long growing season and the difference in temperature between night and day give the grapes a chance to reach full ripeness and develop fine perfumes and flavours. The Steinmassl vineyard is approximately 350 metres above sea level and stretches along a south-southeast facing slope, protected against cool northerly winds. Subsoils here are gneiss and weathered mica. Topsoils are clay, heavy, stony and difficult to work. The stones retain heat and continue to radiate it long after sunset.

Vinification:

The grapes were harvested carefully by hand, then placed in small crates (20 kg). Maceration, which lasted 12-24 hours, a first fining and spontaneous fermentation all took place in stainless steel tanks (50%) and used oak barrels (50%). Fermentation was fast, and was completed by the end of December. At the end of February, the Steinmassl was racked, and then aged on the fine lees for 6 months in stainless steel tanks until bottling in September.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2013)
Loimer's 2013 Riesling Steinmassl Erste Lage is one of the most complex and elegant Rieslings of the vintage not only in the Kamptal but in all Austria. It will also compete with the best German Rieslings and should be cellared for a sufficient number of years. The wine was hand-picked quite early end of October at 19.5° KMW and fermented spontaneously during 4-6 weeks in 100% stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 20 and 22° C. It then aged for 6 months on the full lees in large used barrels before it was racked in small used oak barrels until it was bottled in September with 13% alcohol and 1.8 g/l of residual sugar. The wine shows an intense lime color, is rich, dense and precise on the nose where lime and white peach flavors as well as spicy mineral and herbal aromas lead to a juicy, full-bodied, piquant, and very complex wine of great elegance, balance and freshly aromatic length.

Pale lemon in the glass. The nose is restrained and precise, with fresh green apple and spicy notes. On the palate, the 2015 Lois is quite full bodied and juicy, supported by harmonious acidity and herbal, peppery nuances that mingle with juicy green apple flavours. The finish is fresh with lingering pepperiness.

Fine aromas of pear, green apple and a hint of exotic fruits. The wine has great, lively acidity and has a refreshing light body. Persistent fruit concentration on the palate is full of zesty apple, ripe lime and spice, with good finesse and a precise, fresh finish.

F.X. Pichler M Gruner Veltliner Smaragd 2017
“M” is a very different style to the other wines from F.X. Pichler. This wine is bright yellow-green in colour. On the nose, there are notes of ripe mango, honey and spice. On the palate, there are spicy characters with a hint of anise. This wine is full-bodied, concentrated and the finish is long and luscious.
