⭐️90/100⭐️ Weingut Matthias Warnung “Feldstück” Chardonnay, 2016 📍Kamptal, Niederösterreich, Austria🇦🇹 🍇100% Chardonnay Tasted: June 2020 Matthias Warnung farms approximately 10 hectares of vines in the region of Kamptal in Austria - northwest from Vienna. 
His vineyards consists of mainly old and well adapted vines of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt, but he also hides a bit of some Chardonnay and Muller-Thurgau in his pockets.
He took over the operation of the winery from his father in 2010, after spending time working with various other winemakers, most notably the famed South African natural winemaker behind Testalonga, Craig Hawkins. .
He’s focusing on natural harvesting, and ferments all the wines spontaneously with little to no sulfur added.
This wine is made from 40-year old vines, fermented in 8-year old 400-liter barrels with one day’s maceration. It’s matured 24 months sur-lie in the barrels, and then bottled unfined and unfiltered. 
Only 1.000 bottles were made. Beautiful aroma that needs a little time to really show it’s complexity. Gaining that, light fruity notes of white peach, lemon peel and lime juice appear with a slightly touch of wood. I bit of croissant and a chalky minerality too. Most i significantly, there’s a clear and super beautifully integrated yeasty scent from the 24 months of sur-lie. Doesn’t smell like the usual Chardonnay - very interesting. The palate is light-bodied with a fine prickly acidity. The flavors are light and elegant bringing some lemon juice, lemon peel, fresh light herbs, melon skin and flint. The finish is long with a salt note and a bit of salmiak.
