Styria

Lackner-Tinnacher Morillon "Eckberg" '16

Styria is easily amongst the most beautiful wine regions we have ever visited. Located in Southern Austria, along the Slovenian border, the region is most notable for white wine. A host of grapes thrive, such as Welschriesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and the wine we are featuring today, Morillon (Chardonnay).

Lackner Tinnacher is a small, family run estate. Katharina Tinnacher is the winemaker, and daughter of owner Fritz Tinnacher’s 17 hectare estate. 

This excellent example of Morillon comes from the Eckberg vineyard whose soil structure is composed largely of lime marl with loam on top. It is a vineyard that works particularly well for Burgundian varietals. East exposure brings the sunlight necessary in the morning to help dry off the grapes from the frequent rain and fog.

The 2016 Eckberg Morillon is beautiful with notes of fresh white peach and flowers on the nose. Medium weight, yet not cloying, with great purity and length.
