Loiser Berg is a cool vineyard, facing south, to the west of Langenlois. Grüner Veltliner and Riesling grow well. This TBA is now maturing well, as its gold color proves. While the primary fruit flavors have gone, there is still great freshness, with honey and spices the main tastes. Judging by that freshness, it still has many years to go.
