Actually should Fred Loimer be a geologist by profession. The terroir that he plays in the Kamptal and the thermal region is so diverse that it is easy to lose track. The Loimer winery is located in Langenlois, the central municipality in the growing area. In the northern part the basement of the Bohemian Massif dominates with gneiss and mica schist and in the Heiligenstein also sandstone. Towards the Pannonian Basin, the rocks were often covered with ice-age loess a meter thick, and towards the Danube you can find thick gravel terraces of the original Danube. It is a real pleasure to compare the different Grüner Veltliner with each other or to taste the three top-location Rieslings side by side. In Gumpoltskirchen, the wines show how similar the thermal region is to Burgundy. All wines, regardless of the terroir, are always authentic, profound and complex, never bold or loud. Fred's natural wine series has us personally: "With caution" extremely impressed.
