Deep nose that’s very smoky and flinty, with candied-lemon and minty aromas. Very concentrated for such a cool and sleek chardonnay, also very focused with a very tightly wound tannin structure. So much chalky and lemony freshness drive the imposing and vibrant finish. Enormous aging potential! From organically grown grapes. Sustainable. Drink or hold. Glass stopper. ... More details

Tement's Chardonnay (a.k.a. Morillon) 2020 Morillon Ried Zieregg GSTK offers a deep, dense, very elegant and aromatic yet highly serious nose with ripe fruit and fine yeast and iodine notes. Juicy on the palate, but also exceedingly mineral, this is a punchy, highly complex, vital and elegant Chardonnay from coral limestone. The wine is still yeasty, but substantial and enormously saline, developing terrific, complex length. It is still very young and unlikely to drink with pleasure before 2026. 13% stated alcohol. Vinolok closure. Tasted in Grafenegg in September 2022.
Winery
The part of single-vineyard Zieregg where the Morillon is planted changes from limestone to marl, which has more heat storage capacity and is ideal for a full-bodied wine. Cool winds also favor the aromatic expression of the grape. After natural fermentation, the wine was aged for 20 months on the lees in neutral barrels. Bottled unfiltered. Optimal drinking time after five to 15 years.

Country: Austria

Archaeological evidence suggests that grapevines have been grown and cultivated in what is today modern Austria for over four thousand years, making it one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world. Over the centuries, relatively little has changed in Austrian wine, with the dominant grape varietals continuing to be Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and others. Austria is renowned for producing excellent and characterful dry white wines, although in the eastern part of the country, many wineries specialist in sweeter white wines made in a similar style to those of neighboring Hungary. Today, Austria has over fifty thousand hectares under vine, split over four key wine regions. The domestic wine industry remains strong, with Austrians drinking their local produce outside in the summer, and people around the world are beginning to once more rediscover this fascinating and ancient wine culture.
