Despite having less than 2000 inhabitants Rust was bestowed the title of city by the Hungarian crown in the 1600’s perhaps down to the fame of the local wines particularly Ausbruch the lusciously sweet wine which was once one of the world’s most expensive wines. Michael Wenzel is finely tuned to the history all around him on the Austro-Hungarian border. He grows Furmint with cuttings taken across the border by his grandfather during Hungarian communism. The wines are zippy and textured with a real purity from minimal intervention winemaking and low sulphur dioxide use just at bottling.
