Wine Advocate 92 points - Loimer’s 2012 Riesling Steinmassl smells bracingly of salt spray, lemon rind, quarry dust and ripe peach, leading to a firm, polished palate where parsnip and peach fuzz join the already mentioned elements found in the nose for a rousingly invigorating performance, with white pepper, walnut oil, crushed stone and a cyanic glow of peach kernel enhancing a sense of piquancy, energy and grip. Plan to follow this through 2020.
Wine Spectator 90 points - This shows plenty of punch to the ripe apple, pear and white currant flavors. Smoky accents unfold on the richly spiced and well-structured finish. Drink now through 2018. 290 cases made.
