Our Notes: St. Laurent is a wild cross between Pinot Noir and an unknown variety. Likely originating from France, it is now native to Burgenland. In the early 1980’s, Axel’s father Georg was among the first to focus on single varietal bottling of St. Laurent. Made from older vines (min 15 yrs), longer maceration during fermentation and three times the barrel treatment than the Selection bottlings, this is more concentrated and grippy. With a warm and dry 2009 vintage, ripening was easily achieved resulting in big spicy aromatics coupled with thick skinned earthiness – think Pinot Noir’s bolder and cheekier sister. Will pair wonderfully with venison, gamey veal/rabbit stews, mushrooms and practically anything topped with a Juniper sauce.
