A bottle of St. Laurent

The St. Laurent is a very old and traditional Austrian grape variety. Its ancestry is entwined by many legends and still unknown. The name is however believed to be derived from the day of St. Laurenzius (August 10th) around which the St. Laurent grapes usually start to change their colour. Wines of St. Laurent are typically deeply coloured, strong and pleasingly mild. Wine enthusiasts often value it as high as Zweigelt and may even prefer the fine Pinot flavours that ripe St. Laurent wines show. In past decades St. Laurent seemed to be somewhat out of fashion but due to its high potential it is now much valued and growing in importance again.
