Description

Morillon is the name given to "Chardonnay" in the picturesque region of Southern Styria. On the nose, it has a scent of yellow stone fruit, ripe banana, dried apricot and fresh biscuit. On the palate, it is very well balanced, dense and fruit-intensive with fine spice. Typical regional acidity, pleasant length and a lot of finesse make this Morillon a great example of a Southern Styrian Chardonnay.

Weingut Polz

The family vineyard of Erich Polz is situated in an idyllic field in the middle of hilly Southern Styria, about an hour’s drive south of Graz. The business was originally founded in 1912. In the late 1980s, the brothers took over their parents’ vineyard. Christoph Polz, Erich’s son, became the fourth generation to assume the role of winemaker in 2011.

The Polz vineyards are situated in one of the best winegrowing regions of Southern Styria around the Grassnitzberg where the Illyrian climate prevails. The area is characterised by a special harmony of Alpine, Pannonian and Mediterranean climates. As a result, the wine grown here is of the finest quality. The geological composition of the soil, many hours of sunshine and well-distributed rainfall offer almost perfect conditions for viticulture.

Grape variety

Morillon

Morillon is a synonym for Chardonnay that is particularly used in Syria. This is because for a long time no-one knew what the variety was called, and it was named on the spot after Morillon in Burgundy, where the vine came from.

Südsteiermark: Weisse Klasse in vielen Nuancen

Nirgendwo sonst zeigt der Sauvignon Blanc so einen Facettenreichtum wie in der Südsteiermark. Als «Steirische Klassik» lernen wir ihn geradlinig und erfrischend unkompliziert kennen, im «High End»-Bereich begegnet er uns als vielschichtige und auch lagerungsfähige Lagen-Selektion von alten Reben, die heute zumeist im grossen Eichenfass ausgebaut wird. Neben dem Sauvignon überzeugen hier besonders auch die Muskateller Weine. Sie vereinen intensive Aromatik mit animierender Bekömmlichkeit.

Styria: the fresh, white wave

The southern cultivation area of Austria surprises with its refreshing white wines. Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chardonnay (referred to here as Morillon) impress with their own profiles. Since the opening of the border with Slovenia – where the Iron Curtain once hung in its more moderate form – a dynamic, cross-border wine culture has developed. It almost seems as if the vibrancy of the hilly landscapes is reflected in the wines themselves.

Austria – Sumptuous culture, accessible to all

Austria is characterized by unbelievable topographical diversity. A flat steppe in the east, forests and hills in the Alpine regions, wetlands and Mediterranean landscapes in the south. This in addition to a rich tradition and even greater love. It’s no surprise that the Romans found joy on this patch of Earth and cultivated wine growing. Austrian wine is not abundant, but it is high quality.
