Posts about: Ruster Ausbruch

Burgundy/ Pinots

We like the Pinots best, and they, in turn, like our Pannonian climate.

Depending on the vintage, we use Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir to create full-bodied, extract-rich wines that delight our wine lovers, especially after a few years of aging. We also press our best sweet wines from these varieties.

About once a decade we press a “Ritter” from Pinot Noir. The fully ripe, healthy grapes are harvested as an Auslese and achieve very high alcohol and extract values ​​if they are dry. This gallant wine is chivalrous for us, as it has excellent conditions for long aging.

 

Historical background to the Ruster Ausbruch

If the interaction between nature and humankind is successful, a special taste experience may develop in the barrels and we are pleased with a new vintage of “Ruster Ausbruch”.

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.
