92+/100 Punkte Robert Parke Jun 2016 The 2012 Zagersdorf Sankt Laurent is still discreet on the nose and offers smoky notes along with cedar and fine cassis aromas. Full-bodied, concentrated and intense, this is a powerful and silky textured Blaufränkisch with great finesse, tension and intense fruit aromas. The 2012 is more meaty, fruity and round than the 2013, but does not have the precision, tension and tightness of the successor. The finish is still a bit rough.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 Even lighter in alcohol than the 2016, Schuster's 2014 Zagersdorf Sankt Laurent was bottled with 12% alcohol and offers a pure, fresh and stony nose of sour cherries, underwood and spicy/flinty notes. Silky, pure and fresh on the palate, this is a straight, taut, fruity (cherry) red with a tight, somewhat austere but well-concentrated finish. Coming form 55-year-old vines, this is a quite concentrated, complex and mineral St Laurent that is beautiful to drink and even to pair with fish. Very stimulating. Tasted October 2018.
88/100 Punkte Robert Parker December 2018 From different vineyards and soils on the shores of the Lake Neusiedl, the 2016 Burgenland Zweigelt is pure, fresh and bloody on the fleshy nose. Dark cherry and floral notes lead to a medium-bodied, fresh and silky-textured palate that reveals stimulating purity and mineral freshness. This wine is straight and tight but also transparent#a lovely and refreshing red! Tasted October 2018.
91/100 Punkte Wine Spectator, Nov 15, 2018 This graceful red exhibits fresh acidity that cuts through the dense flavors of plum, blackberry and wild herbs. Features soft, well-integrated tannins, which are focused by the acidity. The spicy, mouthwatering finish expands over the palate and invites you for another sip. Drink now through 2024.
