St. Laurent 2006

Current Wines | Wines from 2006


A bottle of St. Laurent

The St. Laurent is a very old variety that is only common in Austria and even there it is fairly rare. Its ancestry is entwined by many legends and still unknown. Its name is however believed to be derived from the day of St. Laurenzius (August 10th) around which the St. Laurent grapes usually start to become coloured. Wines of St. Laurent are typically deeply coloured, strong and pleasingly mild. Wine enthusiasts often value it as high as Zweigelt and its rare occurance often makes it even more interesting.

Tasting notes

Our St. Laurent 2006 presents a beautiful dark red colour. The flavour is full of ripe fruitiness and appears almost grapy. Ripe fruity notes also dominate the taste, fullness and velvety tannins the finish.

Food suggestion

This wine suits excellently to a festive meal as a companion to a strong red meat dish.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum 2-3 years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for 6-8 years.
