2014 Heidi Schröck Furmint Burgenland

SKU #1258545

Named "Austria's Wine-Grower of the Year" in 2003 by renowned wine magazine Falstaff, Heidi Schrock is the coolest female winemaker in Austria. Heidi has gathered experience from places like South Africa & Germany and brought it all back to her hometown of Rust. She took over the winery from her parents 20 years ago and has since spend much of her time reviving traditional wines of her Austro-Hungarian forefathers. The family motto states that tradition should be honored but also mixed with progress; for it means keeping alive the fire, not adoring the ashes. if Loire Chenin is high on your list-o-goodies then you’ll adore this Furmint. It’s as if Mosel Riesling and Vouvray were blended in your glass. The variety, famous for Tokay, was reintroduced to Burgenland (once a part of Hungary, after all) in the early ‘90s by Heidi and others of similar mind. It ripens late and holds onto its acidity and is as graceful as storks in flight and as evocative as the nightcalls of strange birds and frogs wafting darkly over the reeds.

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
