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

  • 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 ...

  • Well Al, most of the wine in Germany is white and most of that is Riesling, although of course there are other whites - Schuerbe, Sylvaner, etc.. They're trying more and more reds but it's not really red country -  Dornfelder, Regent, St. Laurent, Spatburgunder, Zweigelt and others just don't come anywhere close to the whites.But Germany isn't o...

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • If you have any doubt that Austrians love their wine, consider the fact that the Viennese vineyards were begun 2,000 years ago and they are the only significant producing vineyards in the world growing within a cosmopolitan center’s city limits. The vines are less than 20 minutes by car, bus or train from the heart of the city. Austria has four ... Read More

  • What varietals do you think would match my fruit-driven palette well, such as ... even Pinot Noir. Also maybe St Laurent, Lagrein, and Graciano. However, all of those come in various iterations, so it's not really useful to talk about varieties alone - you have to include info about the producer, the vintage, and the particular bottling.You ca...

  • Thanksgiving wine pairing can be tough. With tons of different flavors and lots of different palates at the table, it's downright difficult, if not impossible, to find the perfect wine. Pinot Noir, Riesling and Beaujolais are always near the top of the most recommended list, while Carmenere and Gewurztraminer  seem to be this year's trendy picks... Read More
