Serving Recommendations:

Serves well chilled or decanted.

Michael Pinkus: “An easy sipping red with Pinot-ish flavours...quite lovely.”

Tasting Notes:

The nose and pallet of the St. Laurent are similar to Pinot, but with more ‘red fruit’ and a comforting ‘fresh rain’ character that makes it perfect as a companion to foods cooked outdoors.

Recommendations for Other Harwood Wines:

Harwood's 2009 Pinot Noir would make an excellent addition to this St Laurent served with the main course.
