Description

The St. Laurent grapes love warm days, as they do cooler nights, and most importantly windy places – like the Edles Tal. Our warm Pannonian climate in combination with the cool winds from the River Danube, therefore, brings ideal conditions for this elegant variety. The grapes are able to ripen, while also keeping their typical fresh acidity, which makes the St. Laurent wines very interesting and charismatic.

The hand-picked whole bunches are sorted gently and carbonically macerated in closed fermenters, in a very slow and cold fermentation in the old cellar. After 3 weeks the whole bunches are pressed into old oak vats, finishing fermentation as juice. Aging takes place in 500-liter vats for 4 months. The wine is lightly sulfured at bottling.

Juicy sour cherry & cranberry aromas, spicy and earthy on the palate. Carb-mac red at its best!
