Notes: Fast becoming one of our favourite wines! This Zweigelt Rusterberg is dark red in colour with aromas of black cherry & hints of cocoa. Austrian winegrowers often refer to Zweigelt as ‘the fighter’ due to its hardy nature; however, Heidi’s Rusterberg has an elegant core, silky tannins & a lot of character. A wine well worth a try.

 

Producer Info: Heidi Schrock has pioneered the role of women in the Austrian wine scene. Voted ‘Vintner of the Year’ by food & wine magazine Falstaff, Heidi also led an organisation dedicated to promoting female winemakers. As a result of her work, the number of women working in the Austrian wine industry has increased considerably.

Heidi took over her family’s 10 hectare estate in 1983, in the famous village of Rust, Burgenland, just five miles from the Hungarian border. Her south-east-facing vineyards along the western banks of Lake Neusiedl form a semi-amphitheatre, which provides considerably more sunlight hours compared to the rest of Austria. The soils here are sandy with clay, gravel, grey quartz & schist. With help from her twin sons, Johannes & Georg, Heidi sustainably cultivates the classic Austrian varieties, Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch & St Laurent, as well as pioneering the revival of traditional varieties, such as Furmint, better known today across the Hungarian border.
