The 2015 Ehrenhausen Muschelkalk is a Sauvignon Blanc blended with a bit of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, all grown on the shell limestone soils in the municipalities of Berghausen and Spiegelfeld. It fermented and aged for 30 months in oak, with the Sauvignon Blanc in large barrels and the Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc in small barrels. The 2015 displays an intense citrus color and a deep and mineral bouquet with perfectly ripe and concentrated fruit aromas. Full-bodied and intense, with firm structure and fine tannins, this is an impressive, nicely textured and persistent wine partly from top terroirs. This is a beautifully balanced and lush white from the chalky soils around the domain in Berghausen. The long, salty finish shows really fine, refreshing tannins and excellent aging potential of at least 10 years. Bottled in May 2018 and tasted in June.

I am possibly repeating myself in saying that Armin Tement (supported by brother Stefan and his wife Monika as well as his parents Manfred and Heidi) has made Weingut Tement to Austria's number one wine producer. Although it has been lead to one of the countries finest wine addresses already during the 1990s and 2000s by Armin’s father Manfred, the son has pushed the borders even further. In terms of size, sophisticated winemaking and the immense range of high-quality wines, I don’t see anybody else producing wine on this level in Austria, and even in other German-speaking countries, there is perhaps only Markus Molitor from the Mosel on those heights. Armin Tement manages to produce great wines even in problematic vintages such as 2016 and also from less highly regarded grape varieties such as Welschriesling. Even Pinot Noir is shining brightly here like perhaps nowhere else in Austria. Readers can look forward to a Pinot vertical that I am lucky enough to be invited to next year. Although the wines were already collected for me this year, I didn’t find the time to add them too. Tement is producing so many wines that it would take me another day to get this done.
