Dark ruby red in colour. The bouquet shows aromas of black cherry and hints of cocoa. Austrian winegrowers often refer to Zweigelt as ‘the fighter’ due to its hardy nature; however, Heidi’s Rusterberg has an elegant core, silky tannins and a lot of character on a dry finish.

Heidi took over her family’s 10 hectare estate in 1983, in the famous village of Rust, Burgenland, just five miles from the Hungarian border. Her south-east-facing vineyards along the western banks of Lake Neusiedl form a semi-amphitheatre, providing considerably more sunlight hours compared to the rest of Austria. The soils here are sandy with clay, gravel, grey quartz and schist. Heidi sustainably cultivates the classic Austrian varieties, Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St Laurent, as well as pioneering the revival of traditional varieties, such as Furmint, better known today across the Hungarian border. Heidi, Georg and Johannes. One woman, two young men. Mother and sons. In an ancient winegrower´s estate in the center of the renowned Freistadt Rust, the vinophile trio produces some of the most sought after white, rosé, red and sweet wines made in Austria - principally from autochthonus varieties of the region. The shining stars of the company, Schröck sweet wines, have represented the house for many years. Liquid elegance dressed in gold. Heidi Schröck & Söhne. A small, fine established company with big, aspiring ideas. Open, inspired, passionate. And pretty delicious.
