The grapes for this wine come from fine, old vineyards around Langenlois and nearby areas such as Zobing, Gobelsburg, Schitern and Mollands. Both young and old vines for the wine grow in loess, gravelly, and gneiss soils. This Zweigelt Rose owes its intense, gleaming pink color to its 12 hours of maceration. But a part was created through whole cluster pressing and by the saignee, or bleeding method. The rose was fermented in steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness and fruity aromas. Following a brief period of maturing on the lees, the wine was bottled.
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.
