Buy Loimer Riesling Steinmassl
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.  (Apr 2014)

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. -KM  (Nov 30 2014)

Wine maker notes
Riesling Steinmassl, named after an old stone working tool, is from a hilltop vineyard of primary rock and silvery mica that takes a fair amount of wind the north and west. The vineyard was a former quarry in the extensively planted Shilterner Berg area north of Langenlois town. The wine of Steinmassl tend towards tension and minerality with perhaps a little less stone fruit and exotic richness found elsewhere. The grapes were harvested carefully by hand in late October to early November. The Riesling then went through maceration and a first fining. Spontaneous fermentation occurred in 50% stainless steel tanks and 50% wooden casks. The Steinmassl was racked, and then aged on the fine lees in Austrian oak barrels for 7 months.

Born into a winemaking family, Fred Loimer Jr. realized early on that he would have a future in the winemaking business. Following his formal education and experiences abroad working for other wineries, he returned to his family”s winery in Langenlois, where he utilized his newly gained experience - something that didn´t always please his father. In 1998, one year after the winery was handed over from father to son; Loimer bought a historical vaulted brick cellar, a former cellar of the Haindorf Castle, in the middle of the grapevines between Langenlois and Zobing. With the help of the architect Andreas Burghardt, he renovated the cellar adding a minimalist building above to serve as the tasting room and office. Since 1999, the wines have been vinified and stored in the historical cellar under perfect, natural temperature conditions. Moreover, the Veltliners and Rieslings from single vineyard sites are ranked amongst the best wines of Austria and the wine world.
