With their generic Ruster Ausbruch, Kurt and Hans Feiler are able to make fascinating blends, such as this combination of Chardonnay, Neuburger, Weissburgunder and Welschriesling. With this mix, and after more than 5 years, this is a wine that doesn't show fruit as much as richness. It is creamy and opulent, showing some spice; still young at heart, with dry botrytis and honey on the finish.
