Vintage: The wine year 2017
Never before did a harvest begin so early – August 29th! The early harvest produced firm, well-structured wines. The year began with a winter that showed its stricter side only in January. The following months - until mid-April - were very warm, which resulted in an early bud break. By mid-May, however, it was unusually cold and the Ice Saints made their appearance. Fortunately, we survived the frosty nights in late April and early May unscathed. The rapid development soon showed that it would be an early year once again. Flowering went smoothly and was complete by early June in Gumpoldskirchen and ten days later in Langenlois. Grape bunches were completely formed in many vineyards already by the end of June. The first half of the year was marked by drought in Langenlois, but the vines survived well. Apart from delayed growth in some of the vineyards, this dry year also had some benefits. For example, keeping the vines healthy was easier. Water stress showed only in the stony, very dry locations. The long-awaited rain arrived in Langenlois at the end of July. August and September were perfect for development. Notably, the water supply in Gumpoldskirchen was always sufficient. Then there was the wind, which ensured a quick drying of the leaves as well as warmth for a smooth and timely development. The 2017 vintage turned out to be very positive overall and concluded with an early harvest. In Gumpoldskirchen, we celebrated the finale on September 15th; in Langenlois, on October 12th.
Tasting: Subtle aromas of herbs, pomegranate and red berries. The palate is very round and spicy with mild acidity and a lean body. A very precise rosé that offers – when well-chilled, of course – pure, carefree drinking pleasure. A light wine with pizzazz.

Maak kennis met het wijnhuis Weingut Fred Loimer - Langenlois (bio)
De geologie die hier overheerst is net zo rijk aan contrasten: in het noorden vinden de wortels van de wijnstokken hun weg door gneis en mica leisteen van de Boheemse massa, zandsteen overheerst in Heiligenstein, terwijl in het zuiden de lösslagen zich vaak enkele meters dik opstapelen.
We zijn blij dat we in Kamptaler toplocaties zoals Loiserberg, Käferberg, Steinmassl, Seeberg, Heiligenstein of Berg Vogelsang wijngaarden hebben en dat we met onze wijnen kunnen bijdragen aan de internationale reputatie van de Kamptaler als streek van herkomst van uitstekende witte wijnen.
De wijnranken groeien laag bij de grond zodat de druiven alle terugkaatsende warmte kunnen opnemen, terwijl het smalle hogere bladerdak voor de fotosynthese en de nodige schaduw zorgt. Densiteit van de wijngaard is 5000 stokken per hectare, de opbrengst wordt hierdoor laag gehouden waardoor de wijnen aan extract en concentratie winnen.
Alle wijnen zijn KAMPTAL DAC ÖWT wijnen en zijn Bio gecertifiëerd RESPECT.
Ongeveer 200.000 flessen worden gebotteld waarvan 94% wit, 5% rood en 1% zoete wijn.
