Christina St. Laurent 2019 - Aromas of dark fruit and sweet tobacco invite you into a palate of blackberry juice, baking spices, and a sort of green vegetal flavor in the background. Bright acidity and a lighter body make this a perfect red to put a chill on.

On the vineyard/winemaking - Made from 100% Sankt Laurent grapes in Carnuntum, Austria. Organically farmed and vinified. Whole bunches underwent a slow and cold carbonic fermentation for 3 weeks. The juice was then pressed and finished fermentation in old oak vats. Elevage took place in 500 litre vats for 18 months before bottling. Winemaker Christina Netzl and her parents operate 28 hectares of organic vineyards.

On Carnuntum, Austria - The Carnuntum wine region was fairly recently given Appellation recognition, receiving DAC (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) status in 2019. This area in eastern Austria stretches from Vienna to the border of Slovakia and is located within the larger Niederöstereich wine region. Soils range between loam, loess, sand and gravel. This area has been recently known for a wave of progressive and young winemakers creating modern, fruity, and elegant red wines that still reflect a strong sense of place.

Sankt Laurent - Believed to have originated in Austria as the result of a crossing of Pinot Noir and another unknown variety. Usually medium bodied with lighter tannins and nice acidity. A delicious next step for the Pinot Noir lover!

Pair St. Laurent with - Mushroom risotto & grilled vegetables or cv charcuterie board.
