About this winery
Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenloiser Arena.
St. Laurent is a traditional Austrian grape variety – and presumably was named for its early maturity around the Catholic calendar day of St. Laurence rather than for a French village. Nevertheless, genetic sequencing reveals a close relationship to Pinot Noir. Over the centuries, the mutation-prone variety has undergone a process of adaptation to our terroir and now shows more texture, color, tannins, and fruity flavors than its famous relative.
Fermentation in a smaller wooden vat, about 15 to 18 days on the mash. Eighteen months of maturation in 300 liter oak casks, 2nd and 3rd filling, lends the rather austere character of young St. Laurent some rounded softness
Pure and Fragrant bouquet with only hints of black cherries and red and black berries framed by spicy, flowery and earthy tones; dry light and refreshing taste of once again cherry (skin), berries and fresh garden herbs, elegant cool style yet well structured, with still some youthful tannins leading to a fresh and spicy finish.
