RIED STIFTSBREITE ST. LAURENT AUSSTICH 2020

£19.00

St. Laurent is a relative of Pinot Noir and originally was brought to Austria from France by Stift Klosterneuburg in the 19th century. Today it is considered and indigenous Austrian grape variety and is cultivated on 40 hectares in the single-vineyard „Stiftsbreite“ in Tattendorf which is the largest St. Laurent vineyard in the world. The St. Laurent Ausstich is a selection of the best big oak casks of each vintage.

This St. Laurent Ausstich shows deep ruby-pomegranate colouration. Hints of star anise and gingerbread, and fine cherry and sour cherry notes make it a particularly elegant representative of its variety. A red wine with balance and velvety texture which leaves one waxing enthusiastic.
