Variety: The autochthonous grape variety Furmint has always been cultivated in Rust. In Austria, there are only about 10 hectares of Furmint grapevines. The long tradition of cultivating Furmint starts with the Ruster Ausbruch. The Furmint gives this wine its necessary acidity and reveals sweet wines that are in the position to compete against the best in the world. Harvested by hand, also very strong, dry Furmint wines with high storage suitability are cultivated.
Tasting: bright yellow, focused fruit and structure, aromas of apple and quince, full-bodied balance, fine nearly salty minerality, firm and compact with strong expression.
Best served with: catfish fillet with leaf spinach, pumpkin pie, celery-cheese-quiche, Wiener schnitzel, roast pork with quince chutney, quince compote.

Bright transparent colour with a green hue. Discrete fruit aromas but fine layers, stony and chalky with ginger, lemongrass, pepper and wild herbs. Very vivid palate with bright acidity, mouthwatering with good volume, ripe citrus and fresh pear flavours. Well-built with fine extract adding freshness, good depth and a long saline finish, very nice.
