Brut Rosé Reserve N/V

Fred Loimer’s wines are among the very best examples of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling in Austria. He began practicing biodynamics in 2006 and is a founding member of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture. His estate near the village of Langenlois in the Kamptal region includes several prestigious single-vineyards, and his winery is a model of modern efficiency. 

Wines intended for immediate enjoyment are vinified in stainless-steel tanks while single-vineyard wines are aged in traditional large barrels and spend an extended time maturing on their lees. His philosophy is one of non-intervention and patience. “If we have one helping hand in the cellar,” says Fred, “it’s time.” 

Brut Rosé Reserve is a blend of Zweigelt, Pinot Noir, and Sankt Laurent from biodynamically-farmed vineyards in Langenlois and Gumpoldskirchen. The wine is made in the traditional method using indigenous yeasts for alcoholic fermentation followed by full malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. It is aged for eighteen months on the lees in bottle before disgorgement and finished with a low dosage. 

Tasting Notes

Loimer Brut Rosé Reserve shows the red-fruit aromas typical of ZweigeltPinot Noir, and Sankt Laurent with notes of fresh strawberries and cherries accented by sweet herbs and flowersThe palate shows firm acidity while 18-months aging on the lees in the bottle provides weight and texture.  

Food Pairing

Sekt Rosé based on red grapes such as this one can be an excellent partner to meatier dark fish such as grilled salmon or seared Ahi tunaSushi and sashimi are brilliant when paired with Loimer Brut Rosé as are dishes with root vegetables, mushrooms, and eggplant.
