SAINT LAURENT: AUSTRIA'S ANSWER TO PINOT NOIR IN FINE FORM
While we all love throwing back the classics like Pinot and Cabernet, sometimes you’re feeling a little bit feisty, and you got to switch it up. Saint Laurent is a grape native to Austria, and can be described as a darker, meatier version of pinot noir with an almost purple color and big aromatics which can include everything from cherry to juniper. “We make wine as my grandfather did,” Erich Sattler says, “only with better machines.” Sattler’s vineyards are on the east side of Lake Neusiedl, in the Burgenland region of Austria. The lake creates a special microclimate which moderates the warm air from the easterly Pannonian plains. The soil here is composed mainly of gravel, part of a 5 kilometer wide gravel bed left behind when the Danube river dried up 2 million years ago. This is a polished, excellent introduction to Austria's most Pinot Noir-esque native variety! Erich Sattler produces this particular bottle of Saint Laurent from his best vineyards, all of which are farmed using organic practices. The wine is aged in small, used oak barrels to add depth and round out the acid and the fruit on the wine. We could keep going but all you really need to know is that this wine is freaking delicious, we only got a case of it, and if you like Pinot Noir, you should definitely give this wine a try.
