Originally from France, the St. Laurent grape has by now become a classic among Austrian red wines. The warm, fertile brown earth of Klosterneuburg Monastery’s vineyards in Tattendorf offer optimum conditions for quality ripening of the thick-skinned, dark blue grapes.
Both the fine bouquet of forest berries and cherries and the elegant tannin structure characterise this full-bodied and multifaceted wine. Ageing for 8 months in small wooden casks (50% oak from Klosterneuburg, 50% French oak) lends it its charming vanilla notes and with an outstanding maturation potential of 10-12 years this means the wine will soften and become more expressive with time.
Pair with grilled venison and wild duck.
