Christina St. Laurent
Climate: The St. Laurent grapes love warm days, as they do cooler nights, and most importantly windy places – like the Edles Tal. Our warm pannonian climate in combination with the cool winds from the River Danube therefore brings ideal conditions for this elegant variety. The grapes are able to ripen, while also keeping their typical fresh acidity, which makes the St. Laurent wines very interesting and charismatic. Vinification Method: Whole bunches are sorted gently in open boxes and ferment carbonically, in a very slow and cold fermentation in the old cellar. After 3 weeks the whole bunches are pressed into old oak vats, finishing fermentation as juice. Elevage takes place in 500 liter vats for 18 months. The wine is lightly sulfured at bottling.
