I first had the pleasure of sampling this outstanding wine at an Austrian wine event I attended in New York. Although I’d tasted over 30 wines that day, this Riesling, from the Kamptal region of Austria, stood out from the pack and I was thrilled to find it readily available at several stores in my area.
The nose of the 2007 Loimer Riesling is of ripe apple and juicy peach. Peach turns to pear and ripe apple to baked apple on the palate. This wine is concentrated, luscious and rich with spicy undertones. The finish is long with mineral notes and nice acidity.
