Loimer do that again...
This wine estate in Langenlois is one of the most treasured in the Austrian wine scene. Already in 2000, through the building of the new cellar, not only in the Kamptal were new dimensions taking shape. The historic cellar, which dates back to the 19th century, acquired a contemporary counterpart. Tradition and innovation – an expression of a philosophy that also can be found in the wines.
The interplay of soil and climate form the basic character of the wines from the Kamptal. The influence of the Pannonian climate from Hungary to the east brings hot, dry days to the area. And the cool air currents from the Waldviertel region to the north help spice up those hot daytime Kamptal temperatures, which reach up to 38° Celsius. The soils are just as unique - and ideal - for wine growing. Found here is Gföhler gneiss, the primary rock of which the hills of the Kamptal are composed. This is covered by a layer of brown soil, though, at various points, a
chalky layer is nestled between them. Also in the area is loess, airborne dust deposited during the ice age and that metamorphosed into fertile soil. And finally, there are clay soils, which are found along the banks of the Kamp river.
Spicy-peppery and herbal notes. The clear and fine, juicy fruit along with beautiful acidity make this a very animated and drinkable wine. Because of its structure and intense mineral finish, the medium-body displays a lovely depth.
This wine I tried last weekend! Along with a very good friend! When we opened up the bottle so we thought we were in another world, what a wine! We tasted som freshly cooked mussels with fries and lots of creamy seafood soup .. A wine that I will surely follow for years to come
