Weingut Juris St. Laurent 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Saint Laurent is a fairly rare Austrian grape varietal, that appears to have some Pinot Noir in its DNA but produces wines denser and juicier than that variety. The 2006 Juris is deeply colored, medium- to full-bodied and possessed of lovely sour cherry fruit with brisk acidity. It recalls, say, a Mondeuse from the Savoie and is equally food-friendly.

The JURIS Winery is located in the historic center of Gols. The Stiegelmar family has been cultivating grapes in this wine area for generations. The earliest records of the Stiegelmar winery are documented in a family prayer book and dated 1571. Today the JURIS vineyards are located in the best locations of the Gols district. Georg Stiegelmar began with the production of high quality noble sweet wines parallel to his takeover of the family winery in 1965. As time passed the significance of red wine, production grew and now makes up 80% of the total wines. White wines and sweet wines receive equal care and attention although they make up only 20% of production. The vineyards include all of Austria’s most important red wine varieties, but special focus is given the grapes of the Burgundy family, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir. The classic varieties Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc play the main role for the white wines. Read less
