Winemaker’s note: “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.”
Varieties: St Laurent. Estate-owned and farmed by Christina’s family, certified organic.
Cellar: 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 10-20 days of maceration, the whole bunches are pressed into old oak vats, finishing the native fermentation as juice. Aging and malolactic fermentation takes place in big old oak vats for 6 months. Unfined, unfiltered, lightly sulfured at bottling.
Personality: juicy sour cherry & cranberry aromas, spicy and earthy on the palate. Carb-mac red at its best!
