Lois Grüner Veltliner
Blend: 100% Grüner Veltliner
From: Austria, Kamptal
By: Weingut Fred Loimer
Austria’s beautiful Kamptal is fast becoming a prestigious wine-growing region, and the Lois Gruner Veltliner has certainly been well received and well reviewed. Created from Austria’s signature Gruner Veltliner grape, Lois Gruner Veltliner is grown on terraced sun-baked slopes overlooking the Kamp river valley.
Controversy in the 1980s caused by some rogue winemakers brought Austrian winemaking to its knees, but now diligent, passionate vine growers are helping Austrian wine regain its rightful place on the world wine stage. Wiengut Fred Loimer is one of them: his vineyard is organic, run biodynamically, and belongs to the Respekt association of winemakers who share the purest of ideals. Lois Gruner Veltliner is created in 150 year-old wine cellars with natural yeasts.
