- Heidi Schrock Furmint Burgenland 2011 Product #26578 (In Stock)
We'll let importer Terry Theise tell you about this beauty: "I sometimes think if I had to select just one wine from my entire portfolio that would express why I do this and what I believe in, it would be this one. 8.82 hectares in all of Austria — Heidi has 10% of them — reintroduced after having vanished by a small coterie of loyal idealists, difficult to grow, late-ripening and high acidity, and a subtle searching flavor that so perfectly expresses the sad sweetness of late Autumn. The stubborn fragrant quince, the little divinity-crystals in the pear, the low honey-sun, all there in these wines. And this usually bashful wine is like a 21-gun salute in ‘11. A swoon of fragrance, dizzy whirling galaxies of complex sweetness; linden blossom concentrate; the palate is mint and salt and pepper, steel and stones and the vapor-echo of that sweet aroma; serpentine and somewhere beyond “expressive,” out in its graceful orbit in the smooth warm ether of beauty.
