Wine tasting notes

Lois exudes beautiful aromas of fresh apples and some cassis. And its appealing spiciness is pleasantly surprising. The freshness as well as the acidity that is so characteristic of the Kamptal lend to the pure drinking pleasure that Lois gives. You can put a bottle of Lois on ice – just right at 8° - 10° C.

Expert Reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2015)87 pts

Feb 2017 - David Schildknecht - This is one of the loveliest installments of Loimer’s high-volume, entry-level négociant cuvée that I can recall. Fresh green bean and apple are the basis for a juicy, crunchy performance whose hint of garden-weed greenness is not at all off-putting. Buoyant and refreshing, this finishes with tangy persistence.

Wine Spectator (2009)84 pts

Issue: Web Only - 2010. Light and crisp-tasting, featuring fresh apple flavors accented by lemon-lime notes. Notes of savory herb mark the finish. Drink now. ?KM.

Wine Enthusiast (2011)91 pts

Light and crisp, this has clean pear and grapefruit flavors. With its enticing acidity, this is a great summer quaff. Screwcap. — R.V. (7/1/2012)

Chris Kissack (2007)12 pts

Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com, 12/20pts (2007) -"Bottled under Stelvin. Very pale, water-like hue, tinged with a little green. A very floral nose, chalky and perfumed, and in fact a touch soapy. Very soft on the palate, poorly defined, low acid style. It seems very lost on the palate. Hmmm."

Vinification Notes

The grapes were harvested in October with 16,5° - 17,5° KMW (Klosterneuburger Mostwaage; around 84 – 90 Öchsle) and brought gently to the estate in small boxes. Depending on quality, they were then pressed partly whole bunch and partly shortly after maceration (after destemming, the grapes rest before they are pressed) which generally results in a broader array of aromas. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, LOIS was matured on fine lees and bottled.
