Peter Schandl Ruster Ausbruch 2001
Updated: Jun 22, 2020
7.5% abv. Rust, Burgenland
Made from 100% Pinot Blanc, this Ruster Ausbruch is a stunning single varietal sweet wine, its deep amber brown nectar beckoning to all and sundry to be sipped and savoured. There are deep layers of botrytis fruit consisting of plum, peach and apricot, all unfurling into delicious flavours of toffee and dark bread with a whisper of wild honey from deep within the woods. The finish is long and generous. The balance is perfect with a fresh, energy-driving acidity keeping everything moving with tantalizing precision. RS is 300 g/L. Maturation was in 225 L French oak. The 0.250 L bottle - a touch smaller than the standard 0.375 L bottle - sealed with red wax is simply stunning.
