Kracher 2008 Zwischen den Seen Nummer 9 Trockenbeerenauslese Welschriesling (Burgenland)

Opulent honey and lemon aromas waft from the glass in this superrich but so balanced wine. The acidity is an essential element, cutting through the sweet orange, honey and ginger flavors. A gorgeous wine.

Kracher 2005 Zwischen den Steen Nummer 8 Trockenbeerenauslese Welschriesling (Burgenland)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $103

The intensity of the acidity, piercing through the sweetness, is what is astonishing about this wine. It gives the wine an ethereal quality, a lightness to go with the concentration of the dried fruits and orange zest flavors. The essence of TBA.

This is a wine with such a wonderful balance of fresh, lemon acidity and sweetness. Its honeyed texture is cut with a mineral bite that gives opulence and structure at the same time. The wine needs long aging so drink from 2017.

Kracher’s sweet Scheurebe is consistently a remarkable wine. It’s gorgeously opulent and tightly textured at the same time. Spice, sweetness and acidity combine harmoniously and seamlessly. Age this great wine and don’t drink before 2017.

A beautiful wine that is almost like nectar. It has extreme freshness, while the acidity is a wonderful contrast. Such concentrated orange flavors and a smooth texture while there is a great citrus edge.

Kracher 2005 Nouvelle Vague Nummer 10 Trockenbeerenauslese Chardonnay (Burgenland)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $111

Marmalade, syrup, molasses and a deep layer of botrytis dryness are all elements of this superb wine. But it is so much more than the sum of its parts, because it is the sheer intensity that makes it so fabulous. The finish prolongs the pleasure, the acidity mingling with pure concentration and wonderful, unforgettable honey and fresh fruit.

Kracher 2010 Nouvelle Vague Nummer 8 Trockenbeerenauslese Traminer (Burgenland)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $100

Opulent, yes, but also deliciously perfumed, this is a full, rich and very sweet wine. Traminer lends its spice to the wine although the dominant characteristics are opulent botrytis and a liquorous texture. Age this gorgeous wine and drink from 2016.
