James Suckling: 95, Wine Advocate: 94

"What a beautiful nose of lemon blossom, lime zest and fresh mint! Super-fresh and focused, the interplay of racy acidity, zesty fruit and chalky power spot-on. Dazzling freshness at the long, energetic finish. Excellent aging potential. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold. Glass stopper." —James Suckling

"Tement's former Grassnitzhberg comes under a new name since the family opted for a particular naming for the coolest part of the 80-hectare single vineyard that is located on a coral limestone shelf in the southeast-exposed Erste Lage (premier cru). The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc Ried Grassnitzberg Riff 1STK opens very clear with elegant fruit and floral notes on the nose. Almost austere in its phenolic grip on the palate, this is nonetheless an elegant, herbal-fruited Grassnitzberg from the coral limestone reef with a dense, firm-mineral structure and length. Though still a bit restrained, it is a superb Sauvignon that will evolve in bottle. 13% stated alcohol. Vinolok closure. Tasted in Grafenegg in September 2022." —Wine Advocate
