Michael Wenzel is based in Rust, a town on the west bank of Lake Neusiedler in Burgenland where his family have been making wine since 1647. The quartz, gneiss and mica schist soils of his vineyards are perfectly suited to the Furmint grape, producing structured, mineral wines.
Pale gold. This Furmint shows all characteristics of the historical, indigenous grape-variety: Fresh aromas of apples, fully ripened quinces with a hint of lemon flavours. The palate is succulent, finishing refreshingly crisp with mineral-expression. The fruit was transferred straight into the press without crushing and destemming.
