St. Laurent

St. Laurent: is a grape that is full of prounounced dark fruits such as black berries, sour cherries and prune complimented by beet root and dark chocolate notes. The wines this grape produces are velvety with subtle tannins. The grape is quite similar to Pinot Noir as Pinot Noir is one of it's parents (the other is unknown.) Like its parent, St. Laurent has a history of being difficult to grow, but has recently enjoyed a rebirth in popularity. The grape is primarily grown in the northern and central parts of Burgenland as well as the norther areas of Lower Austria and in Styria. Thermenregion is the traditional home of the St. Laurent wines. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

St. Laurent on Snooth

  • I’m always being asked to recommend an unusual wine, “one that isn’t Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay”. With media communications improving by the minute it’s getting more and more difficult but at a recent corporate event I saw a few puzzled expressions when I suggested Blaufränkisch. It’s one of my favourite Austrian reds and certainly falls i... Read More

  • Jist for THOI is searched through about 600 wines from Germany (Many of them overlapping.)  that are available on the internet.  There were less than 10 reds from Germany - only Spatburgunder and Dornfelder.  There were a few Zweigelt from Austria - which is a varietal I find interesting and represents a different wine exoerience.  There were ZE...

  • Hi. I was recently going through my pictures from Germany along the Rhine in 2000. I drank an awesome red wine there from the Mosel area. This wine tasted almost like fruit juice and was the best I had ever tasted. I don't remember the name and have been unable to find any wine that matched the flavor of that wine. Any suggestions as to where I ... Read More

  • ProWein, the annual wine and spirits fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the high water mark for wine brands, regions, and drinkers worldwide. Nearly every wine producing area you’ve ever heard of (or not heard of) is represented at this event. The event is so huge that it should have its own postal code. This is one of those rare instances in life ... Read More

  • Anyone care to play a little sleuthing game? Why are these labels different for the same wine?With all the fake wine out there these days, especially in Burgundy and Bordeaux, folks are a little anxious about Rudy era bottles.   Read More

    Forum post in the topic Same Wine, Different Labels


  • Well, as D said Garnacha is a good place to start. It's kind of an outlier. Generally, although this isn't going to help much, red grapes from warmer regions will have thicker skins and consequently more tannins than those from cooler regions. That's not strictly true - Garnacha and Nebbiolo come to mind as being clear examples of that NOT being... Read More

  • In a country known for its white wines, one New Zealand college is trying to grow against the grain. A team of professors and students from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) are in the first  round of harvesting several new cold-weather reds, an anomaly in the land of sauvignon blanc. “The new plantings over the past three years ...

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
