'More Is More' Welschriesling 2022

  • Woman Maker
This is “one for the wild and thirsty ones,” to quote winemaker Heidi Schrock. You know, the folks who love fun, fresh, and easy-drinking whites like this charmer. Offering notes of citrus, apple, and a bouquet of fresh white flowers and hay, 100% Welschriesling (not to be confused with actual Riesling), is simply a fantastic, unfussy, and unforgettable wine. Try it with fish, grilled chicken, or Salade Nicoise.

Heidi Schröck took over her family's winery in 1983, in the historic village of Rust situated in the province of Burgenland about 5 miles from the Hungarian border. Here, as Heidi explains “South-facing vineyards in a softly rolling landscape form an amphitheater around Rust on Lake Neusiedl bringing forth some of the best and most tradition-rich wines in Austria.” She re-introduced historic varietals such as muscat-lunel and furmint from Hungary while continuing to work with more classic Austrian varietals such as Grauburgunder, Weissburgunder, and Welschriesling, and in 2003 was awarded the prestigious “Falstaff Vintner of the Year” one of only a handful of women to obtain this distinction. Heidi is the long-time leader of Cercle Ruster Ausbruch, an organization whose goal is to bring back Ausbruch, a sweet wine reminiscent of Hungary’s Royal Tokaji that had not existed since the phylloxera outbreak in the 19th century.
