St. Laurent

Ricci Vineyards

 

Winemaker’s Notes

Dale Ricci and Schug have worked together for over 20 years. Dale is known for his willingness to experiment and has long been an advocate for lesser known varieties. St. Laurent is one of the most widely planted grapes in middle Europe and has achieved success alongside Pinot Noir in the region. Dale brought us this grape a few years ago and it has proved a pleasant challenge to begin to understand. In keeping with the variety’s Old World roots, we vinify this simply in open top, small batch, fermenters. The wine is aged in large, 132 gallon, puncheons to help keep the focus on the fruit. The end result is lively with plenty of fresh fruit flavors. Intended for enjoyment in the short term, drink this alongside charcuterie, pasta or other rustic fare.

“Bordering between the fringes of a Burgundy and Rhone Varietal, St. Laurent could best be described as Pinot Noir with sultry underpinnings.”
