Zweigelt 2020

St. Laurent is characterized by its tender, elegant character, which comes from the cool and windy climate of the Plateau of Gols. It has a dense berry structure and thin skins, which makes it very sensitive. It is also difficult to tell how much quantity this variety brings every year, because some vines often do not carry grapes at all – this feature makes it rare, but very popular.
