Loimer "Lois" Grüner Veltliner: a Review

Wine is as good as life to a man, if it be drunk moderately: what life is then to a man that is without wine? for it was made to make men glad.
    —Ecclesiasticus, ch. 38, v. 1

(Our sample bottle was purchased by us at standard retail.)


About Loimer "Lois" Grüner Veltliner

First, it's pronounced to rhyme with "choice"; it's the local nickname for Langenlois, the main village of Kamptal, which in turn is a well-respected wine-making region of Austria. The grapes are grown on soil of loess and weathered gneiss, and the wines have a DAC regional classification. This is Fred Loimer's entry-level GV. It is matured on the lees, and ses no wood.

Loimer "Lois" Grüner Veltliner is very widely available at retail in the U.S., with prices as low as around $10 on up to around $22; the average price (per Wine Searcher Pro) is about $14).


Loimer "Lois" Grüner Veltliner: Tasting Impressions

It struck us as high in acids with only modest levels of fruit present. Nor did it seem, to us, anyway, an especially varietal-character wine. All in all, it was acceptable drinking, but nothing noteworthy—almost earns that dreaded epithet "a poolside wine". Sum: "harmless", which is not much of a recommendation.
