Loimer Grüner Veltliner Terrassen 2006


Loimer's Grüner Veltliner 2006 shows some nice oak maturation effects and already some age as the wine has developed to being multi-layered. The white wine has almost a sweet mouthfeel (although being a dry white) with a fruity touch in a perfumed and spicy package with citrus, dark spices and grass, like freshly mowed grass, included. The palate gives you the grassy feeling along with ripe, sugared orange and pineapple notes as well as some animal sweat. And really nice acidity.

According to importer, 1/3 of the grapes are aged in oak (from vineyards in Käferberg ja Spiegel) while 2/3 spends in steel tanks to keep the wine's natural freshness (from vineyards Loiserberg, Seeberg, Eichelber and Kogelberg). A very nice dry white, go get yours for 25 euros in the nearest Alko. This is not a paid commercial - none of my blog texts are - however the wine is worth trying.
