Loimer

Kamptal, kamptal Austria

The Loimer estate vineyards lie around Langenlois in the cool yet sunny Kamptal area to the north-west of Vienna. Divided into 100 parcels and planted on seven different soil types, the 80 hectares of vineyard offer huge potential for great complexity in the wines, while their high altitude and south/south-east-facing aspects encourage the development of aromatic compounds in the grapes. The conversion to biodynamic viticulture began in 2006, resulting in official Respekt certification for all estate wines.

Realising early on that he would follow in his father’s footsteps as a winemaker, Fred Loimer attended Austria’s renowned Klosterneuburg University and gained valuable experience in Nahe, Germany and the Napa Valley. Fred took over the winery from his father in 1997, purchasing and renovating a 19th century vaulted brick cellar in 1998. Unlike many Austrian producers who go for a rich, sweet style, Fred obtains full ripeness in the vineyard yet ferments to dryness. All the Loimer wines display his trademark definition, zest and balance on the palate.

The grapes for their two regional wines are handpicked from vines aged up to 50 years. Aromatic and crisp, the Kamptal Grüner Veltliner and Kamptal Riesling offer excellent value.

Loimer’s single vineyard (Erste Lage) wines are ranked among the best in Austria. Certified both organic and biodynamic, the ‘Ried Käferberg’ Grüner Veltliner and ‘Ried Steinmassl’ Riesling are from top vineyard sites in Langenlois. Both wines display wonderful purity of fruit and a real sense of place.
