Single-vineyard Grassnitzberg was the first vineyards owned by family Tement and was planted in the early 50ies. The old vines of the south south-east facing slopes grow on massive shell-limestone soil.
The fantastic vintage 2018 impresses with a mineral flavours such as pear, caper salt as well as black currant. A lot of limestone spices are present and leave an eternally long taste.
May be drunk young, but after 3 years, the typical "Grassnitzberg terroir notes " emerge.
BACKSTAGE “WINE ALONG THE LINE”
As a family and as winemakers we follow principles in life as well as at work. Organic agriculture is one of the principles we hold dear. With the end of the 2018 vintage we made it public and started a never ending journey. Year after year we understand a tiny bit more. Now we grow not on acreage but on responsibilities.
