St. Laurent 2020Current Wines | Wines from 2020
St. Laurent is a very old traditional Austrian grape variety. Its origin is surrounded by many legends, since it is unknown to this day. The name probably comes from the day of St. Laurenzius (August 10) around which grapes usually begin to turn color. St. Laurent wines are typically deep dark coloured, powerful and pleasantly mild. Among wine connoisseurs, St. Laurent enjoys a reputation comparable to that of Zweigelt, some even prefer the fine Burgundy notes that ripe St. Laurent wines display. Due to its excellent qualities, St. Laurent is nowadays more popular than in the past, when it seemed to be a bit out of fashion.
