In order for Heidi Schrock to label this dessert wine with the ‘Ruster Ausbruch’ designation, the grapes must be grown in the city of Rüst and be affected by the fungus Botrytis, also called ‘noble rot.’ The term ‘Ausbruch’ refers to the laborious selection of suitable berries, in which the desired berries are broken from the grape bunches. This meticulously crafted wine is comprised of Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc. The balance of sweetness and acidity is astounding with opulant aromas of chamomile, overripe peach, dried apricot, saffron, and honeysuckle. The full, textured palate, although not cloyingly sweet, tastes of peach pie, sweet lemon, white pepper, and brown butter.
