Tement 2020 Tement Blanc Sudsteiermark 750ml
This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling is characterized by juicy stone fruit, fresh apples, nut tones and floral aromas. The high proportion of Sauvignon is almost imperceptible. Pinot Blanc is much more influential. Beautifully balanced on the nose and wonderfully stimulating to drink. In the mouth, the charming body harmonises with an apple-fresh acidity. All in all harmony with a soft, round finish. The perfect meal companion. An authentic southern Styrian terroir wine with an unmistakable Tement note.

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.
