An absolute classic indeed. A fine example of St. Laurent, earthy, smooth with a fruity freshness. Our new reference St. Laurent (complemented in a richer style by the Klosterneuburg St. Laurent Reserve and in a wilder style by the Kiss).

St. Laurent makes a suave and sophisticated wine with a lingering finish that continues to delight for ages. It pairs well with most food especially meats and as many commentators advise, those foods which you shouldn’t really eat, like barbeques, cheese and anything fatty.

If you are a fan of Zweigelt remember that the St. Laurent grape was combined with Blaufränkisch to create Zweigelt. It is a very good parent indeed. Although St. Laurent is not Pinot Noir, any more than Carménère is Merlot, there are some similarities to be found. If you like a meatier, gamier Pinot Noir, try this – you will not be disappointed!

Tasting Notes

This wine starts smooth and fresh, and evolves with age to greater and greater depth and length.

The 2009 was extraordinary in 2012, and the 2012 grew to best Austrian red in New York in 2015, and the last few bottles of the 2016 are amazing in 2020

Vintage 2012

Ben says of the 2012 (May 2018): I thought that the 2009 would be unsurpassed as it was such a phenomenal wine. I am ready to be proven wrong, however, as the 2012 is already developing tremendously. Tasting it recently, accompanied by a beautiful duck dish, it was rich and powerful with a heady nose and fruit driven flavours. A very long finish rounds off an a wonderful drinking experience.
