Weingut Tement, Südsteiermark
Grassnitzberg Sauvignon Blanc, 2015
Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
On the south-east facing slopes of Grassnitzberg the comparatively cool temperatures at night and the shell-limestone soil with cambisol result in a wine with such cool and spicy Sauvignon Blanc aromas. The overwhelming vintage of 2015 impresses with a low mineral, almost impenetrable mesh of flavours such as pear, caper salt as well as savory and blackcurrant. A lot of limestone spices are present and leave an eternally long taste. May be drunk young, but after 5 years, the typical "Grassnitzberg terroir notes " emerge.
