Morillon vom Opok
Biodynamic Chardonnay from Steiermark.
Cloudy, smokey, yeasty, sappy, fresh!
Bruised apples, ripe lemons, underripe pineapple, green mango. Plus some hay, flinty, smokey aromas. Juicy, fresh, enticing.
On the palate with vibrant acidity, with great freshness & depth. Rough around the edges, with a touch of cidery notes, a bit of VA. There’s a creamy touch to the mouthfeel. And a mineral hint. This is ultra drinkable and so delicious. Love it! — 7 months ago

Fun funky wine to chill and drink. Super pale, like lemonade, but dry, chalky fruit that kept you wanting for more! Bought at BP. — 3 months ago

Unmistakably Steiermark SB - green asparagus, nettle, grass with a pronounced mineral, stony, slightly smokey backbone. On the palate this is tightly wound around a core of juicy, vibrant, mineral acidity. Yet it has (just) enough body & great depth with a spicy, vibrant mineral finish to make it a really profound wine. This one should wait for at least another 10y. If you can control yourself. — 2 years ago
Absolutely gorgeous. Bright and floral like pears and citrus with nice texture and depth in the mouth that even out the tannic finish. Loved this wine, I can see it pairing well with anything, any time. — 5 months ago
Beautiful orange color, semi-dry and bittersweet on its own, smoothens and sweetens when paired with a citric/acid based meal. We paired it with a warm, lemony, tuna Niçoise salad which elevated both the wine and the meal. — 8 months ago
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. ❤️ — 10 months ago
