Kamptal Grüner Veltliner

Food pairing: Asparagus, artichokes, smoked ham, smoked fish, spiced Asian dishes, fresh cheeses.
About the wine: Fred Loimer owns 80 hectares around Langenlois, in the sunny Kamptal region of Lower Austria. Fred attended Austria’s renowned Klosterneuburg University and gained valuable experience in Nahe, Germany and the Napa Valley before taking over the winery from his father in 1997. Unlike many Austrian producers who go for an overly rich and sweet style, Fred gets full ripeness in the vineyard yet ferments to dryness, managing to produce wines with lovely definition, zest and balance on the palate.
Country: Kamptal, Lower Austria, Austria
