Kurt Angerer

St. Laurent, 2006

Austria Red

Kamptal 75cl

Kurt hails 2006 as his greatest red wine vintage to date and a real breakthrough vintage. This region is really known for it's white wines.
The 2006 barrel samples Kurt supplied for the London Wine Trade Fair at excel in May were very well recieved. They have just been bottled. this is the first i have tasted. It's impressive but still a bit bottle shocked having gone from barrel to bottle just 4 weeks ago. St. Laurent is from the Pinot Noir family. At this young 'knocked about' stage the oak is a little raw on the nose. Also ripe red cherry and plum. It's really bright and vibrant with lovely cherry and plum allied to coffee and mocha from the oak with some creamy notes too. The fruit keeps fighting back and it's really pure with good acidity and ripe tannins. It's delicious if a little oaky. Would love to see this in another 2-3 months when it will really have settled down. Shows immense promise. Will be around 12
