Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

A complex Austrian red showing peppercorn, cumin, and dark berry notes on the nose. St. Laurent is a relative of Pinot Noir, so expect a lighter style of wine marked by the great acidity that is a strength of cool-climate wines. Delicious, ripe, and unwooded.

Known for being an excellent transmitter of terroir, this wine has a deep beautiful color and notes of both blackberries and morello cherries, finishing with some nice minerality. It also has some unique exotic spice elements that I think make it very interesting and particularly delicious. Lower in tannins and alcohol, and displaying some great contrast of ripe fruit and refreshing brightness, this wine is super food friendly. Though lighter in body, the flavors in this wine can stand up to dishes on the heavier side with savory spices. HW
