2008 Alois Kracher Auslese Cuvee (half bottle)
Producer: Alois Kracher
Style: Sweet Wine
Grape Type: White Blend
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($17; for 375 ml.; a 70/30 blend of welschriesling and chardonnay, with around 80 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12% alcohol) Brilliant golden yellow. Initially restrained nose reveals aromas of sponge cake, brioche, avocado and grapefruit with some coaxing. The flavors of sweet orange and greengage plum laced with minerals and framed by juicy acidity make an elegant impression. Finishes with convincing notes of mandarin orange and greengage plum, and plenty of salty minerality. Offers excellent potential for further development.
