Pittnauer Saint Laurent Altenberg 2012
St Laurent grown on the loamy, red gravel soils of the Altenberg vineyard in Gols in Austria's Burgenland. Natural yeast fermented and matured in 500-litre French oak barrels. Beautifully bright fruit, extremely seductive. Silky palate texture, sleek yet crunchy. Very complete texture and mouthfeel. Once you stop marvelling of the sleek silky texture, the fruit sweetness and brightness kicks in.
James Halliday – There's a certain charm with Gerhard Pittnauer's St Laurent wines and he produces several off different sites, this planted on the Altenberg vineyard's slopes, opposite the Rosénberg. The fruit is just lovely, bound by savouriness though and an amazing aroma profile bordering on Middle Eastern and Asian spices. Sweet round tannins, textural, alluring, full-bodied, balanced with a minerally acid threat driving this to a persistent finish.
