2017 Manfred Tement Ried Rossberg Morillon Styria (Previously $35)

SKU #1525626 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Ried Rossberg Morillon is from a very calcareous marl soil rich in iron and manganese. Vinified in old Burgundian pièces, this is a deep, rich and round, wonderfully aromatic yet pure and flinty Chardonnay/Pinot Blanc blend with very fine tannins and a very elegant and lush texture. The finish is powerful yet pure and persistently salty, with lots of mineral tension and grip. This is an excellent, perfectly balanced but thrilling white whose lush and iodine character is a bit like a Jura wine. Tasted in May 2019. It's almost redundant to say, but in the 60th year of existence, Weingut Tement offers another stellar range of wines. It is composed of the new 2018 generic and village wines and the single-vineyard "crus" from the exceptional 2017 vintage. As always, this lineup was completed by some matured wines and late releases (the more-matured wines will be published a week later) as well as the Slovenian wines from the other part of the Zieregg, since the green border runs without any wall straight through the center of the prestigious cru. Since the reputation of Domine Ciringa is not as high as Tement's, the prices are still very reasonable and the quality is pure Tement.(SR) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Funky yeast and reduction create the first impression on the nose, but a little air allows hints of creaminess and yellow apple to shine through. The palate is creamy and textured and pervaded by a fine-boned freshness that gives tone and poise to the mellow mouthfeel. The finish is dry, creamy and superfresh. Drink now–2030.(AK) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fresh honeysuckle, camomile, loquat and bright herbs. Medium body, bright and steely acidity and a fine, delicate finish. Quite edgy. Drink now. Inner quote mark (9/2019)
