2015loimerlois2015 Fred Loimer, Gruner Veltliner, Lois, Kamptal Austria.
This crisp bright and lighter expression of Gruner by Fred Loimer is a wonderful everyday wine with tangy refreshment and zesty fruit. Brilliantly clear with greenish/gold hues in the glass the Loimer Lois is zingy fresh with vibrant acidity and charming character, all stainless fermented and aged this Gruner comes from grapes grown around the town of Langenlois, hence the name Lois, small yields from contract growers that are leaning towards organic practices help make this an impressive and expressive entry level Gruner Veltliner to be enjoyed young. The 2015 vintages looks set to match the critically acclaimed 2013 in terms of style, quality and pleasure and this wine gives a glimpse of what’s to follow with the more serious stuff that is coming. This dry and refreshing Gruner shows lime, among oil, mineral notes and a hint of stony earth as well as saline, bitter herb and white peach. The vigorous citrus elements drive the light and lean palate, great for the Indian summer season and perfect with shellfish, especially mussels and or raw oysters, at about 12% alcohol it a very sane and easy to quaff white. Be sure to check out all of Fred’s offering in this vintage and if you see his Pinot Noir Langenlois or Riesling Kamptal Langenlois grab them they are always stunners, I’ve always been a fan of Loimer and his wines never disappoint, drink the Lois GruVe over the next 6 months to a year!
