2012 Rosi Schuster Sankt Laurent Burgenland

SKU #1192696

Hannes Schuster and his mom Rosi, the team behind this excellent example of St. Laurent, make some of the most compelling Austrian reds available in the US today. Their estate, planted mostly to red grapes, takes full advantage of its diverse soils and mesoclimates to find the optimal site for each varietal. The St. Laurent is expressive, spicy and minerally, with a creamy silky texture, delicate red fruit and fantastic acidity. A great introduction to Austria's reds.

I don't know if St. Laurent is my achilles heel, but all of these Austrian reds these days taste superb. This 2012 Schuster is precise and absolutely delicious. One taste and its clear that an exceptional team took advantage of every oppourtunity afforded to them by nature to make this wine. Tons of mineral and earth on the nose. Blood. Raspberry preserve. The intensity continues on the palate with medicinal herbs and earth red fruit. Textured and full of life. Medium bodied. Maybe a hard wine to love, but with lots to give. A wonderful pairing for fall flavors. Don't be surprised when this and the next vintage disappear!

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
