loved this wine (as well) - course apples do it for me. Lots of stoniness that sorta grounds the wine a bit. nice wine.
Fooled into thinking off-dry at first but, no, its crisp acid keeps the floral fruit in kilter. Layers and layers of complexity: kerosene, tobacco, minerals. Endlessly entertaining.
peach, apricot, minerality, lingering, good acid structure, balanced
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 Kemptal 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.

Wine Tasting NotesThe nose is dominated by a mix of fruit ranging from citrus, to green apples, to ripe apricots, but also carries and undertone of floral notes. The palate has delicate succulent fruitiness, almost granular in texture, intense mineral structure and vibrant acidity. A classic Riesling that is bolstered by herbal spiciness. The grapes for this Riesling are exclusively sourced from terraced vineyards extending on loess hills gently rolling around the city of Langenlois.
