If you aren't familiar with St Laurent this would be a definite puzzler. At first you might think it was Pinot Noir with all the ripe berry fruit that you'd find in the forest on a summer walk. Once you take a sip the wine it's definitively not Pinot - with firmer tannins and richer structure and beautifully smooth fruit and a savoury twang that nicely compliments the wine.
The Kiss winery is one of the few producers that consistently produce top performance from the St. Laurent variety and have more than skillfully proven this with this single - variety wine from the 2012 vintage. All too often this variety is offered as a trivial wine from the steel tank or is only used in a blend.
As a small family run producer Weingut Kiss holds in high esteem their traditions, while still being dynamic and giving people the courage to try something new.
For three generations they have nurtured their vineyards with devotion, love and care, making it something special and extraordinary.
