"Ripe melon flesh and quince peel notes on the nose promise savory fruit. The palate bursts in with luscious, intense fruit that spills over with grapefruit zest and gorgeously bitter notions of citrus pith and quince peel while a lightning streak of freshness freezes everything into precision. There is much going on here, riotously so, and despite all the sweetness it is this rapier freshness that makes this moreish. Drink by 2050"

The Wine
Bright golden hue with aromas of quince and orange peel, enhanced by the fermentation in acacia barrels. The wines 169 g/l of residual sugar is balanced perfectly by a crisp acidity which carries the flavours through the long, silky finish.

The grapes used for Beerenauslese are grown in the east facing vineyards closest to Lake Neusiedl. The lake reliably creates the misty autumn conditions which are perfect for the development of noble rot. The soil is sandy loam with mica schist and gneiss. The vines are trained in the guyot simple method. Viticulture is done sustainably, without the use of herbicides or insecticides and the growth of local plants as cover crop is encouraged.

The Estate
Heidi Schrck took over her family winery in 1983, in the historic village of Rust situated in the province of Burgenland about 5 miles from the Hungarian border. As Heidi explains South-facing vineyards in a softly rolling landscape form an amphitheater around Rust on Lake Neusiedl bringing forth some of the best and most tradition-rich wines in Austria. Yearly hours of sunshine that lie much higher than the Austrian average combined with sandy soils mixed with clay and high calcium content provide the ideal prerequisites for impressive, full-bodied wines.

In 2003 Heidi was awarded Falstaff Vintner of the Year, making her one of only a handful of women to obtain this distinction. She re-introduced historic varietals such as muscat-lunel and furmint from Hungary while continuing to work with more classic Austrian varietals such as Grauburgunder, Weissburgunder, and Welschriesling. Heidi is the long-time leader of Cercle Ruster Ausbruch, an organization whose goal is to bring back Ausbruch, a sweet wine reminiscent of Hungarys Royal Tokaji that had not existed since the phylloxera outbreak in the 19th century. Ausbruch is harvested from botrytized grapes with a must weight between BA and TBA (138 Oechsle) and Heidis wine is one of Rusts iconic examples of this noble sweet wine.

Heidi is now joined by her twin sons, Johannes and Georg, who, like their mother, continue to produce classic Ruster wines, while experimenting with other varieties and winemaking styles on the side.
