The Dot, Austrian Plum St LaurentRegular price €18.00
Lighter reds with character do not begin and end with Pinot Noir.
This is an aromatic, assertive but mediumweight red made from the relatively uncommon St Laurent grape, which like Pinot Noir is no doddle in the vineyard. Like Pinot Noir, St Laurent also yields wines of good quality that will keep and improve—but the philosopy of the the • dot range from the Pfaffl family is to introduce young, lively Austrian wines to the widest possible audience right now.
You should try this “perfect marriage” of plum and strawberry juiciness as a delicious accompaniment to all kinds of meals, or as a stiff blind tasting challenge for your favourite wine buff.
It's cool and dark, with northern aplomb reminiscent of Côt from the Loire Valley, a smooth operator with pork or game.
