|| | $46 | Austrian Family Superstar: Weingut Tement Grassnitzberg Sauvignon Blanc

Description

Weingut Tement is located in Südsteiermark, Austria. Three generations in and they are producing single vineyard quality wines such as this Sauvignon Blanc from their Grassnitzberg vineyard. Their motto is: “As a family and as winemakers we follow principles in life as well as at work.” In 2019 Weingut Tement was listed as number 15 in the “50 Best Vineyards of the World” to visit.

The single-vineyard Grassnitzberg was planted in the early 1950s and is a special site, being the very first acquired by the Tement family. These old vines are planted on limestone (rare-here) on South by Southeast facing slopes and the resulting wines manage to combine ripe fruit with persistent minerality.

“The 2018 Grassnitzberg opens with pear, smoke and subtle grass notes. The palate is dominated by lime which is somehow rich, along with a mix of ripe citrus notes along with delicate herbal tones. The wine manages to feel both gently creamy yet zingy at the same time. Utterly compelling Sauvignon blanc.”
