Re: Recent Experiences


^ Laurenz
I obviously overread this.
Exactly!
In fact, most of you *have* heard of the producer: Lenz Moser. To be exact, it's Laurenz the fifth ("Laurenz V." stands for "Laurenz five). "Lenz" is short for "Laurenz". He has no connection anymore with the négociant house Lenz Moser, Austria's largest wine producer.
The wine is exactly what it pretends to be: charming, without too much depth.
Laurenz V. is vinified by Fred Loimer (Langenlois, Kamptal), and selected and blended by Lenz M. Moser = Lenz Maria Moser = Laurenz V Moser.

Putting in another word for Loimer Langelois 2004, $13.99 in Pennsylvania...the best GV I've tasted (though I still haven't had a Smaragd from anyone, yet)...going to see how well it goes with leftovers tonight :)

Don't know if you can get it at the PA State Store, but Fred Loimer does a single vineyard bottling called Kaeferberg that is very, very good. Also, the State Store at Village Square in Bethel Park had (has??) Smaragd GV from Rudi Pichler that was simply outstanding!

Thanks, Dave, getting to Village Square is difficult for me, without a car. I see that Waterworks, in Fox Chapel, has it also: R PICHLER GRUNER VELTLINER SMARAGD HOCHRIAN 01 $37.99 Is that the one?
d. PS, the Loimer went pretty well well with the trad turkey with sage stuffing; okay with the cranberry sauce...

thanks for info. Not sure I have had a Lenz Moser, though have heard of them. And have had a couple of Loimer's low end wines ("Lois").
As an aside, Is Loim also a place? I think I've seen Loimer as part of a vineyard name- a bit confusing for those of us just learning about Austrian wines!

Caution - "Lenz Moser" is the name of Austria's largest wine producer/bottler, while Laurenz V. is brand-new (second vintage has been released shortly). Take a look:
(Homepage entirely in English, no German version!)
"Lois" is his entry wine and kind of cash cow, decently made, but not really profound.
No, "Loim" is not a place name. What you might have seen is "Loiser", which is just short for "Langenloiser", the vineyard "Loiser Berg" comes to my mind. Funnily enough, "Langenloiser" can be shortened to "Loiser", "Langenlois", however, never to "Lois". Fred Loimer's "Lois" is a phantasy name.
