Fred Loimer owns 80 hectares around Langenlois, in the sunny Kamptal region of Lower Austria. Fred attended Austria’s renowned Klosterneuburg University and gained valuable experience in Nahe, Germany and the Napa Valley before taking over the winery from his father in 1997. Unlike many Austrian producers who go for an overly rich and sweet style, Fred gets full ripeness in the vineyard yet ferments to dryness, managing to produce wines with lovely definition, zest and balance on the palate.
With an inviting foam profile and fine bubbles, this top quality sparkling wine develops superbly in the glass. Aromas of green apple and lemon cake are complemented by hints of brioche and dried dates. With a dosage of just 2g/l, the bone-dry palate is supported by vibrant citrus peel and toasty notes, animated by a subtle minerality and refreshingly crisp acidity.
