Erich Sattler St. Laurent: a Review

Wine is as good as life to a man, if it be drunk moderately: what life is then to a man that is without wine? for it was made to make men glad.
    —Ecclesiasticus, ch. 38, v. 1

(Our sample bottle was purchased by us at standard retail.)


About Erich Sattler St. Laurent

Winemaker Erich Sattler uses St. Laurent grapes grown in Austria's Burgenland region, a well-established vineyard area of noted quality. The grapes are pressed with the must then left on the lees for six months; minimal filtration is ued in bottling. The alcohol level is a modest 13%. It is unclear if the wine sees any wood, but we believe that it does not.

The Sattler St. Laurent is a wine widely available at retail in the U.S., going at prices running from about $10 up to $20 or so and averaging $18 (be sure not to confuse this bottling with their much scarcer and more expensive "Reserve" St. Laurent, priced in the middle to upper $30s).


Erich Sattler St. Laurent: Tasting Impressions

The Sattler St. Laurent we had was almost achingly pure cherry-fruit in nose and especially flavor. Though the family resemblance to Pinot Noir was clearly perceptible, it was not—as some other St. Laurents have been—an exact match. The fruit, which remained constant in intensity through the bottle, was nicely balanced by good acidity, giving it a quality of brightness. The flavor was clean and clear, but this was no fruit bomb, nor even really "jammy", just keenly flavored of cherry.

The wine was a pleasure to drink, but it was not a notably complex or subtle wine. We will certainly have it again, probably regularly, and recommend it; but it is a little short of being a true "contemplation" wine.
