Morillon Muschelkalk 2019 from Tement
If you dig up the soil here, you will almost certainly unearth some shells, because millions of years ago southern Styria was a primordial sea interspersed with coral reefs. The Morillon, as it is only called in Styria and internationally known as Chardonnay, which grows on shell limestone, comes from the Zieregg, Sulz, Wielitsch and Ottenberg sites. As with all their other wines, Armin and Stefan Tement rely on selective hand-picking and gentle ageing in large, neutral oak barrels. After a little patience and time in the glass, the Morillon reveals freshly grated apples, toasted almonds and a harmonious, almost fresh fruit sweetness that also brings a slight creaminess. We recommend a carafe and larger glasses for maximum drinking pleasure and flow.
