In 1976, Manfred Tement took over control the family winery at age 16, after the sudden death of his father, Josef. A decade later, Tement joined forces with other like-minded winemakers in the region and founded the STK (Styrian Classic Winegrowers), with the goal to create a region-typical wine culture focusing on fruit-driven white wines from the typical Styrian grape varieties. Tement won international acclaim in 1991 when their Sauvignon Blanc was named “world’s best” by the German magazine “Der Feinschmecker.”
Tement's house Sauvgnon Blanc entirely from Tement estate grapes, grown on a mix of limestone & clay with some sand, gravel & schist. Destemmed, harvested by hand, 12 hour skin contact, natural yeast fermentation, 12 months on the lees without additional sulphur, 80% inox steel tanks, 20% big oak casks.
Lush & intense, with notes of zesty lemon, smoke & a grassy finish.
