St. Laurent 2011

A bottle of St. Laurent

The St. Laurent is a very old and already rare Austrian grape variety. 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.

Made from organic grapes. AT-BIO-402

Tasting notes

This St. Laurent shows a beautiful dark red colour. The flavour is full of ripeness and appears delightfully fruity. Ripe notes also dominate the taste, fullness and velvety tannins the finish.

Food suggestion

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

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum two years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for over five years.
