St. Laurent Classic, Fischer, Austrian Red Wine
Weingut Fischer, Sooß, Thermenregion
The Fischer winery in red wine village Sooβ south of Vienna looks was founded in 1662. Christian Fischer took over the winery from his father in the 1980’s and started ageing his red wines in French oak barriques, a novelty in the region at the time. Now fully organic, Christian and his daughter Franziska produce elegant, complex and age worthy reds.
Fischer’s classic St. Laurent is made from handpicked grapes from a number of vineyards around Soosz. St. Laurent is a rare grape variety - only 732 ha are grown all over Austria - related to Pinot Noir. Like Zweigelt, St. Laurent is an autochton grape variety, unique to Austria. Fischer’s St. Laurent vines average 33 years in yielding only 43hl/ha. Fermented 12 days in stainless steel and matured in old, large oak. Dark ruby in colour, red cherry and red plums, delicate and soft, velvety, long finish. Wonderful with roast chicken or pork.
