Harvesting the Ruster Ausbruch

The composition of varieties and quantity in one Ausbruch harvest may vary widely.
The year 2015 brought us fully ripened and healthy grapes and we were happy about the equal Botrytis at the vineyards of Welschriesling, Riesling and Pinot Gris. This was one of the largest Botrytis harvests in that decade. A very good vintage was the result.

Gelber Muskateller

In 2020, the weather conditions were perfect for a good harvest of Gelber Muskateller. One heat wave was followed by another and there was only little rainfall. These are the ideal conditions that make the grape develop its aromas. From the end of August until the beginning of September we check the flavor every other day until the ripened grapes are full of sunshine and can be harvested.
