2013 The Doctors' St Laurent
The Doctors' St Laurent Profile
Premium red varietal grown widely in Austria, Czech Republic and northern Italy. Originally from France, it's a Pinot Noir cross possibly with Carignan, producing dark coloured small berries with smooth silky tannins and sweet cherry aromas.
Deep blue/red in colour, lifted vibrant cherry and raspberry, hints of all spice, white pepper, maraschino cherry and dark chocolate; all with a very European savoury/earthy/barnyard nuance. On the palate full, rounded and silky, makes this wine easy to drink on its own or with smoked or savoury meat dishes.
A new variety to Kiwi palates that should find a home in New Zealand.
