Unique, not only because the synonym for Chardonnay is Morillon in Styria alone. Also, for the top-site Zieregg, it´s grown on; on coralline chalk. Ever-present herbal aroma, dried apple, and exotic fruit. Easily accessible, mineralic, and exceptionally fresh.




Also available as: Magnum 1,5lt

Single-vineyard Zieregg Steilriegel was planted with Morillon to over 90%. Characterized by cambisol and coralline limestone soil, the old vines grow on a 16 million year old coral reef.

Cool winds favour the very aromatic expression of the grapes. To allow the whole complexity of the single-vineyard and variety to be reflected in the bottle, a prolonged ageing process in small neutral oak barrels (228 lt) is crucial. After natural fermentation this Chardonnay was fermented for more than 24 months “sur lie”. Bottled unfiltered.

Exceptional vintage with inspiring length. Ageing potential 20 years and more.

Our Standards

More than 15 years ago we started taking the first steps towards organic farming. We are now in the phase to convert to biodynamics. A logical step for us and a beginning without end. Every year we learn something new, observe nature and get closer to it bit by bit. We see our business as a form of modern circular economy in which wine is part of an overall concept. Partnerships with horse and cattle farmers have just as much space here as the use of the company’s own forest for energy production. Wine as a way of life.
