2018 Heidi Schröck Ausbruch ‘On the Wings of Dawn’
It is difficult to believe that Ruster Ausbruch was almost forgotten until Heidi helped to revive it. This varietal was wiped out by the phylloxera epidemic in the 19th century and was largely forgotten. Ausbruch translates to “break-out” and refers to the botrytis affected berries that are “broken out” of the bunches during harvest. This luscious and incredibly complex sweet wine is solid gold in colour, notes of honey, musky spice, caramel and the purest sweet apricot fruit. Fans of Sauternes would do well to check this out- the 2015 vintage got a perfect 100 point score! Drink this now or cellar for your great-grandkids, you can’t go wrong.
