Claus Preisinger, Ancestral Saint Laurent, 2020

Get 10% off purchases of 12+ bottles of wine. (Use code 10OFF at checkout.)
St. Laurent, a relatively obscure indegenous Austrian varietal, is prized for its low alcohol, high acidity, and Pinot Noir-esque flavor profile. This makes it a perfect grape for sparkling wine, especially from the limestone and gravel parcels of the Leitha mountain. This ancestral or pet-nat is bone dry, with a touch of spice and crunchy cranberries, and some creamy lees for an extra layer of complexity.

If you’ve been dabbling at all in the natural wine scene you may have noticed a pattern. Some producers go directly from whatever non-wine career they’re pursuing into the just add-grapes-to-the-vat approach to winemaking. It rarely turns out well.

Others take their time coming to a natural approach. Austria's Claus Pressinger has taken his time and gotten it right.

He started making his own wines in 2002 with a respect for nature and terroir. But he only achieved his goal after years of incremental changes and improvements. First, he gradually adopted biodynamics in the vines. Then he reduced his work in the winery, doing less and less every year. With healthy enough fruit, the final stage was reducing sulfur. He added less at bottling every vintage until, in 2017, he added none at all.
