St. Laurent has quickly become one of my favorite 'obscure' grape varietals. By all accounts (thus far) it seems to have originated in Austria, where it has been grown with considerable success. Without a doubt, Austria is now home to this grape. The wine is dark, and brings the dark flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with some smokiness and brown spice in the background. What makes the wine so compelling is its texture.. so soft and easy to drink, very reminiscent of Pinot Noir, but darker. We love this wine with grilled pork, chicken, brats, or other specialty sausages. It fills the gap where Pinot Noir seems to step aside as the food gets darker and richer. This will age gracefully for several more years if you'd like to, but it's drinking great right now. - Andy Hall, May 2020This traditional Austrian variety is an offspring of the Pinot Noir grape. It is similar in structure and silkiness, yet has a distinct spiciness and a hint of dark fruit. The grapes go through a one to two week fermentation and maceration process, and are pressed carefully. The wine matures by staying on the lees for six months and is bottled after minimal filtration. It has a dark purple color with a fine and fruity nose. The structure of this wine is elegant with flavors of Morello cherry. It has pleasant acidity and a clear variety-typical character.
