Heidi Schröck is an institution in her ancestral homeland of Rust in Burgenland. Her father was the first of her ancestors to focus exclusively on wine, and Heidi made the family name famous. Now with Heidi Schröck & Söhne (Söhne means sons in German) she is training the next generation of Schröcks. (The name is pronounced sort of midway between Shroke and Shrek.) Rust is a small village on the shore of Lake Neusiedl (a fascinating geological anomaly) that is famously so shallow that people 5’3” and over (sorry, mom) who can swim (sorry again, mom) take part in an annual crossing of the lake on foot! It has mysteriously drained three times in recorded history, with massive ecological and climatic disruptions, so a set of dams and a canal were built in the late 19th century to control the flow of water into and out of the lake and then the entirety of the lake was made into a national park in 1994. With the all-important temperature-regulating effect of the lake assured, Burgenland’s abundant sunshine, and complex marine sedimentary soils make a mosaic of micro terroirs for a multitude of grapes, with, seemingly, all the red ones (thus the reference to touring in the name) used in this Rosé: Lagrein, Teroldego, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch. In this case, however, all those grapes are co-planted in a single block. This family-owned estate with a long history is doing its best to ensure a long future for their heirs and farms sustainably. The hand-harvested grapes are fermented in acacia, steel and oak vessels and left on the lees for 4 months to deliver a richly complex (late) summer sipper with plenty of berries and hints of tannins on the palate.
