$ 23.50

90% Gruner Veltliner 10% an even blend of Welschriesling, Muskat Ottonel, Weissburgunder, Neuburger & Furmint from his organically farmed vyds surrounding Ruster Berg. Grown on gneiss, schist, limestone and sand. Native yeast and used Stockinger barrels. A fantastic vintage! Just a few miles west of the great shallow lake called the Neusiedlersee (literally, the new settler lake) is the town of St. Margarethen and the winery Rosi Schuster. While Rosi still loves to help in the vineyards, today her son Hannes runs the estate, which specializes in brilliant, long-lived red wines. Their nine hectares of vines spread themselves out among the finest and oldest vineyards in the communities of St Margarethen and Zagersdorf. Hannes' style and winemaking techniques are greatly influenced by his friend and mentor Roland Velich of the Moric estate, who he has collaborated closely with for more than a decade. Working exclusively with subtle Austrian oak barrels by Stockinger, Hannes aims at brining the brighter side of the variety's fruit into the glass while expressing the various terroirs of the villages of Sankt Margarethen, Rust and Zagersdorf, where soils ranging from heavy loam to sandstone, gravel and limestone allow for distinctive wines that tell a tale of their place. This is what Hannes finds intriguing.
