Editor note: Translate to English Recht fester, deutlich an Walnuss erinnernder, holzwürziger und merklich vegetabiler Duft mit Kernobst- und Melonentönen, einer Spur Avocado, hellem Tabak, Oregano und erdiger Mineralik. Kräftig und herb im Mund, zurückhaltende Frucht, deutlich vegetabile und etwas holzige Aromen, feine Säure, hefige Noten und eine Spur Butter, noch ein wenig gedeckt am Gaumen, deutlich nussige Töne, mineralisch im Hintergrund, einen Hauch pfeffrig, viel Kraft, gewisse Wärme und Schmelz, sehr guter, saftiger und ganz leicht speckiger Abgang mit holzigen und kräuterig-vegetabilen Noten. Gewinnt mit Luft noch einmal deutlich und sollte unbedingt noch etwas reifen.

The lifting of the ban on planting vines outside Italy by Emperor Domitian (51-96) by Emperor Probus (232-282) had a positive...

The white grape variety originates from France. Although it has slight morphological differences in leaves and shoots compared to Chardonnay, it has an identical DNA profile. Morillon can be described as a variety or clone of Chardonnay. In Austrian Styria, Chardonnay is traditionally referred to as Morillon and is still partly regarded as independent there. However, both designations are also used by some producers in order to document a difference, if necessary, to a qualitatively "better" wine then designated as Chardonnay. In the other Austrian provinces, however, the name...
