WARM but NOT HOT This describes the weather conditions in general in 2018. February and March were very cold winter months. After an unusually warm January, the cold temperatures in February and March led to a later bud break – which meant that, in contrast to the prior two years, there was no damage caused by late frosts. Then came the second warmest Spring since 1767; this allowed for the vegetation to speed up significantly. One of the earliest flowerings ever recorded had been completed in most wine regions by the end of May. This vegetative head start held its own even during the hot Summer. While June was warm and brought moderate rainfall, the month of July was hot and delivered periods of pronounced heat and even drought. This affected especially the Weinviertel region. Irrigation – where possible – and other viticultural measures were urgently needed to protect young plants and shallow-rooted vineyards from stress overload. The harvest was already underway in August, although a cold air front arrived at the end of the month, setting the scene for a cooler picking period. Then came some unpleasant side effects - thunderstorms and heavy rain - which forced a partial interruption to the harvest. Fortunately, a mild, sunny and mostly dry September heralded the harvest’s end. Picking was basically completed at the beginning of October. Even though October was warmer than usual with above-average temperatures in many areas, the grapes already were spending most of it in the cellars for vinification of this very good vintage.
Tasting: Intense spicy aromas of ground white pepper and cardamom along with a whiff of yellow apple. Vibrant mouthfeel even with its lean body structure. On the palate are notes of greengage and dried pineapple - lovely fruitiness with graceful acidity. Good balance and tension. A discreet and elegant tarty touch on the finish.

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.
