The somewhat ‘under the radar’ St. Laurent variety, which comes from France and belongs to the Burgundy family, requires a warm growing environment, since it is particularly vulnerable to frost. At Stift Klosterneuburg’s largest red wine vineyard in Tattendorf, the St. Laurent benefits from exposure to powerful sunlight and ideal alluvial gravel soil conditions to produce a ripe and generous red wine.
Coloured deep ruby red and with an aroma subtly reminiscent of fully ripened sour cherries the fruity and juicy fleshy character has more black cherry notes supported by hints of licorice and tar and is a natural partner for roasted beef and game dishes.
