Outbreak

A designation used only in Austria for a wine type within the quality wine category Prädikatswein. It comes from noble rot or at least overripe berries that have dried up naturally. In the past, freshly pressed grape must or wine had to be added to the grapes to improve the leaching of the natural sugar content of the must. This is also where the name comes from, because this is how the "breaking out of the sugar" took place, so to speak. In practice, however, this special process was hardly ever used any more, but the Ausbruch was produced like a Trockenbeerenauslese. From 2016 onwards the name "Ausbruch" could only be used in connection with the geographical indication Rust for the Ruster Ausbruch. From the 2020 vintage onwards this wine was then awarded the origin-controlled quality level DAC (Districtus Austriae Controllatus) and is now marketed as Ruster Ausbruch DAC
