Forming one with the owner, Fred Loimer, the Loimer estate has become a reference in the world of wine. Modern and innovative, this winegrower who respects nature by always putting an emphasis on carrying out manual harvesting and following the requirements of biodynamic viticulture to a tee. Instilling a low interventionist policy in the cellar, he uses only the quality of his grapes to produce fine Austrian wines with a unique character. The wines from the Loimer estate reflect the uniqueness of the complex Kamptal terroir as well as the passion and patience of a skilful and talented winemaker.
This Grüner Veltliner Ried Käferberg 2019 from the Kamptal DAC appellation (equivalent to the AOP appellation level) is a Kamptal wine that stems from the Langenlois Käferberg vineyard. This plot is located between 310 and 345 metres above sea level and is characterised as one of the region's typical terroirs. Enjoying a continental climate that is both hot during the day and cold at night, the soil is composed of clay and sandy. The vines are between 15 and 55 years old and benefit from the estate's organic and biodynamic viticultural practices.
The estate's very plain label portrays an intriguing little logo. It is in fact a Polynesian symbol that refers to fertility, a subtle reference to biodynamics and the idea that Nature is a living being.
Vinification and ageing
A rigorous sorting of the grapes is carried out during the harvest in order to keep only the high-quality grapes. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels for 4 weeks at an ambient temperature of 24 degrees. The wine is aged on its lees for 11 months in oak barrels and then aged for 9 months in steel tanks.
