2005 Alois Kracher Welschriesling Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen #8
Producer: Alois Kracher
Style: Sweet Wine
Grape Type: other white varietal
98 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007
($92; for 375 ml.) Medium golden yellow. Initially closed nose opens with aeration to reveal aromas of peach compote, orange peel and dried prune, along with a subtle note of fresh green tobacco leaf. The acidity is at once vibrant and totally integrated, giving the dried pear and apricot flavors a clarity and transparency rarely experienced with welschriesling. Peach, pear and a nearly salty minerality are embedded in a creamy texture. An extraordinarily harmonious and long wine with great potential for further development in bottle. Drink from 2015 to 2040.
