St Laurent

SAINT LAURENT is very PINOT NOIR with a peppery slam on the palate. This is your handy wine for some US hamburgers perhaps accompanied with bacon and cheese. 

The nose of the wine is mulberry with a heavy dose of blackcurrant as well.  When tasted there is also an acacia flower component to be perceived in the mid to the back of the palate.  The pomegranate juice is what defines the feature of this wine from Wien that was personally selected by JIM LO DUCA when he visited the winery in 2013. The wine is aged in oak, but no oak will be perceived as LEOPOLD the wine maker let the wine barrels listen to classical music for 24/7 … we are not kidding! 

Saint Laurent Grape Variety is from AUSTRIA, and AUSTRIA IS NOT GERMANY!

As most of the people conjure up German Wines when hearing the word AUSTRIA we have to describe, for the sake of justice, the AUSTRIAN wines in comparison with the German ones; and just to avoid confusion … here is a comparison of the terminology to get to the point:

What is the St. Laurent Grape Variety?

If you could cross - in your mouth and on your palate - both pinot noir and syrah, you'd have a good approximation of the aromas, flavors and texture of Austrian wine made from the grape St. Laurent.  St. Laurent grapes, are also grown in the Carneros zone of California and are America's only 100 percent St. Laurent.

The grape’s thick skin give St. Laurent red wines good depth of color and they finish with a tangy, clipped zing — a nice foil for many a food.  Another red wine that it resembles, especially at table, is Piedmont's BARBERA D’ASTI – CLICK ON HERE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE BARBERA D’ASTI.


 

 

 

At the end if you are fond of Pinot Noir, the St. Laurent wine is your one, but with a bit more flesh on its bones. The skin on St. Laurent is darker, and the wine definitely reflects that with a nose that is generous and forthcoming. Notes of creamy vanilla swirl about after some initial blue fruits, black cherry, blackberry, violets, cherry cough drops, and a touch of evergreen. The palate is richer than its 13% alcohol reflects and very smooth. It finishes with a tang of red plums and redcurrants. Really tasty.
