Steindorfer 2007 St. Laurent “Reserve” (Burgenland) – Much more “Reserve” than St. Laurent, which is a crying shame. To translate from Cynical Winegeek, that means: forced fruit, layers of wood, pretense at the expense of purity, striving where relaxation is to be preferred. (6/11)

Sattler brothers

[label]Sattler 2006 St. Laurent “Reserve” (Burgenland) – Aromatic with crushed petals and leaves, beets, and herbs. Limpid yet intense, with a beautiful texture. However, there’s also some butter and vanilla on the finish that doesn’t integrate, with some bitterness (oak tannin, perhaps). The wood’s too present now, but the wine retains its promise. (12/08)
