Kracher 2011 Grande Cuvée Trockenbeerenauslese Nummer 6 White (Burgenland)

  1. $99

Dark fir honey, baked and sugar-glazed apricots, cinnamon and bitter orange peel—this is a small cosmos of aromatic sweetness hitting a warm, deep and comforting note of immense richness and incredible length. Delicious now and for years to come.

Esterházy 2012 Eiswein Sauvignon Blanc (Burgenland)

  1. $69

The heady scent of baked apple and candied orange peel merges into a citrus-zesty, supersweet but tight palate. Sugar-crusted citrus peel—orange, mandarin and tangerine—play about the palate alongside a notion of fragrant pine resin. A rarity and source of pure joy. If you have a fruitcake laced with candied peel, don’t hold back.

Stift Klosterneuburg 2011 Eiswein Jungherrn Chardonnay (Vienna)

Fresh, superripe as well as candied pineapple combine to give utter opulence to this rich and viscous wine. The longer you taste, the more intense—almost heady—these tropical flavors become. What is more, as an ice wine untainted by any botrytis, this shines with purity and drive, and has astonishing acidity that keeps this just on the right side of paradise.

Hager Matthias 2010 10 Eiswein Zweigelt (Burgenland)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $35

Baked apple with cinnamon and caramel make this immediately seductive. On the palate, faint notes of baked plum lurk teasingly in the background. Very unlike other icewines, but with its spicy, plummy fruitiness, a complete revelation that calls out for spiced chocolate desserts with red fruits. A disarming, astonishing and utterly delicious wine.

Nittnaus Anita und Hans 2006 TBA White (Burgenland)

  1. $27

Vanilla and banana jelly, manuka honey and muscovado sugar—layer upon layer of fruity sweetness with tropical overtones of pineapple is revealed on the luscious palate. Such liveliness is engendered here with a seemingly endless finish. A total triumph.

Nittnaus Anita und Hans 2002 TBA White (Burgenland)

  1. $30

Rich, nutty toastiness softens this tightrope walk between fruit-induced opulence and precise acidity. Slowly, notions of vanilla, Mirabelle plum, dried fruit, apricots and orange peel shine through. A beautifully layered, mature and nearly poetic TBA.

Tinhof NV Apéritif Austrian white blend (Burgenland)

  1. $42

A deliberately oxidized style makes for an immensely intriguing wine that falls between the usual Austrian categories—but then we need wines that defy neat boxes. Aromas of toasted cashew nuts and dried orange peel segue into a dryish, citrus-scented palate, with a central, thick slick of salted caramel and racy acidity. The longer you taste, the more facets appear…

Heidi Schröck 2013 Beerenauslese Selektion White (Burgenland)

  1. $37

Wonderfully heady notes of berries preserved in spirit, with vague hints of dried apple slices, strike a sonorous note, with a seemingly more grown-up sweetness, tempered by almost autumnal flavors of cinnamon. A rounded but totally precise body speaks of purity, which is only highlighted by glimpses of very ripe, yellow Mirabelle plums. A very elegant BA.
