Fred Loimer Riesling Lenz Kamptal Austria 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mineral and floral on the nose, with a faint wash of blue flowers that yields to an almost gooseberry like fruit over slightly musky base notes. This is a ripe yet tense wine that hits the palate with a smack of minerality that defines the wine. There are nice framing notes of clear apple skin and citrus pith fruit, but the rocks take center stage right through the moderately long, slightly salty finish. Not a hedonist's wine but one that wants to make you cry uncle, so if that's what floats your boat, you're gonna love this. 88pts

Burnt popcorn aromas with citrus notes. Bright balanced acidity with subtle lemon lime.
