Lenz Riesling 2012

LENZ, or Laurenz, is the newest addition to the Fred Loimer range. It is a refreshing, attractive Riesling from the Danube region. In October, the grapes were harvested and brought to the cellar in small crates. Depending on the quality, they were either whole-bunch pressed or, as mash, macerated for a short time, which helps to release more flavor. After careful fermentation, Lenz was matured on fine lees in steel tanks, and then bottled so that freshness and primary flavors would be retained as much as possible.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw yellow color, this wine displays scents of vineyard peaches and apricot. Well structured. A vibrant, fresh palate with bright acidity. The acidity and residual sugar impart to the wine a beautiful, lengthy finish. A light, lively Riesling that true Riesling fans will love.

Food Pairing

To be enjoyed on its own or with light dishes (Asian spices).
