Wenzel Ruster Ausbruch Saz 2004

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

At Winery Wenzel (“Family run since 1647”) history and tradition run very deep & results in some of the most exquisite noble sweet wines in the world. This is a blend of Muscat and Furmint showing botrytis on the nose with tones of apricot and finishing with a great acidity. The perfect partner for foie gras with date purée.

Regarded as one of the best-kept secrets in Australian Viticulture, Langhorne Creek is one of Australia's oldest and most significant wine regions. The area was founded on the broad flood plain influenced by the local Bremer and Angas Rivers and dominated by magnificent River Red Gums. The name 'Langhorne Creek' acknowledges Alfred Langhorne, a cattle drover, who brought animals overland to a property known as 'Langhorne's Station' during the 1840's. The place where Alfred Langhorne traversed the Bremer River was referred to as 'Langhorne's Crossing', and from this the current name Langhorne Creek evolved. Frank Potts, travelling through the region, recognised the potential of the area and settled in 1850 on the ancient flood plain. He planted the first grapes in the district in the 1860's at the now heritage listed 'Bleasdale Winery'. The wine region has a proud history of family owned and run vineyards and wineries with the oldest existing vine plantings being 113 year old Shiraz on the historic Metala property. These vines still produce premium wine grapes for Metala Black Label wines. The region originally supported quite a small yet prosperous wine industry alongside other agricultural ventures such as dairy, cereals, lucerne, fruit (including currants and sultanas), almonds, beef and wool. The total area planted to vines stabilised at approximately 440 hectares in the early 1990's until the 'secret' was discovered. The region has since experienced vast growth in viticulture and now boasts almost 6000 hectares of vineyards supplying the Australian wine industry with consistent premium quality fruit and Langhorne Creek branded wines.
