More about this wine

An absolute classic indeed. A fine example of St. Laurent, earthy, smooth with a fruity freshness. Our new reference St. Laurent (together with the richer style of the Klosterneuburg St. Laurent). 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!
