Nose has fresh sage, under-ripe pear, distant smoke, crushed flint, bruised lemongrass and ginger.
Palate has dehydrated lime, lime zest and candied ginger; being fully transparent this palate is incredibly integrated and difficult to identify the component parts...Wow possibly the best SB from Austria I can ever recall, distinct!
A pick-up from my lovely wife last year, she's got good sourcing and a great palate. ❤️ — 14 days ago

Mineral, salty, herbal, grassy.
Green apples, cut grass, salty rocks, an enticing mineral character.
On the palate this is fresh, mineral, with interesting herby, butter edges and a racy underripe lemon acidity. Energetic, zingy, herby, mineral. Delicious. And soo food friendly!

Never knew about this whole Morillon from Austria = Chardonnay thang — 2 months ago
Cab Sauvignon & Zweigelt, aged 24m in used barrique.
Amazingly fresh, vibrant, youthful.
Dark plums, dark berries, flowers, cloves & allspice. An earthy, musky undercurrent. On the palate this is juicy, fresh, with great energy & flow. Black berries, finely grained & quite firm tannins. So juicy, so young.
Drinking beautifully right now, would have never said this is 12y old. Delicious stuff! — 17 days ago
Needs some time to open up, quite muted at opening.
Ripe quince, green pear, a touch of lemon, thyme and other herbs - all in a rather cool, fresh packaging. A waxy hint and a mineral undercurrent. Very fresh.
On the palate this has great energy. Brilliant zingy acidity, all quince & lemons, but also nice breadth and good structure & depth. The minerality kicks in towards the finish with a saline whiff.
Quite some complexity here, and poise, too.
Very not Tokaj but delicious nonetheless.
