Like Pinot Noir? You’ll love St Laurent, a kissing cousin variety that’s popular in this part of Eastern Austria, overlooking the shallow Neusiedlersee that stretches into Hungary. Fruits of the forest, spice and supple tannins make it a slightly earthier cousin of Pinot Noir. Like Pinot Noir, serve it a little cooler than many reds to give the fruit a crunch with duck or roasted vegetables.
