Notes & Pairings
This is the wine that originally brought us to Trapl in the first place. Planted in 2000 near the village of Sarasdorf about a 5 min drive south of the winery, the soil here is heavy with gravel, loam and loess. Grapes are hand picked and then destemmed and foot trodden. After 6-8 days of maceration, they are gently pressed into 500 liter oak barrels for 14 months of aging. Unfined and unfiltered with zero additions until a small amount of SO2 at bottling. Sankt Laurent is often to referred to as the savage sibling of Pinot Noir, it’s more like the Victor of Aveyron of Pinot Noir – noble DNA but raised feral and wild.
