I obviously overread this.
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
The wine is exactly what it pretends to be: charming, without too
Laurenz V. is vinified by Fred Loimer (Langenlois, Kamptal), and
selected and blended by Lenz M. Moser = Lenz Maria Moser = Laurenz

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
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?
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
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
"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.
