Wine maker notes
Spiegel, meaning “mirror,” are typically hilltop sites in Austria and were lookout posts for attack. This Spiegel is pure loess soil giving a straightforward Gruner Veltliner that is “easier to understand”, Fred says. Thanks to the deep, well-drained soils, the vines have formed deeply penetrating root systems, thus overcoming even long periods of draught without damage. This site is ideal for growing Gru¨ner Veltliner. The ripe, crisp grapes were harvested in October. In order to retain as much terroir in the wine as possible, the must did not undergo fining, but was put directly into traditional oak barrels. There, it was fermented with natural yeasts from the vineyard. The wine was then racked and aged on the lees until bottling.

Producer
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.
