Weingut Pfaffl Altenberg St. Laurent 2006

Weingut Pfaffl Altenberg St. Laurent 750ml 2006   
Sku: 1564963*

The Pfaffls have decided to cultivate St. Laurent on the Altenberg vineyard which sits at the same latitude as Burgundy. The diernals - or temperature-differences between day and night, caused by proximity to the nearby forest, brings slow growth, which suits the St. Laurent grape. The grapes can remain on the vines for a longer time which brings more complexity into the wine. The soil here consists of loamy loess, and the vines are approximately 8 years old.

Tasting notes
Color - Dark, ruby red Bouquet - Facetted with hintsof blackberries and dark cherries Taste - A powerful and elegant wine with a tender smoky touch, very soft tannins, and a complex, lingering finish.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are hand harvested. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for approximately 21 days with pumping over with automatic temperature-control at 28C. Aging takes place for 16 months in 100% barrique before bottling.

Food pairing
It is a perfect match to game or duck as well as hard cheeses.
