Winemaker's Notes:

Inviting flavors of fresh peach and tropical fruit on the nose. Juicy on the palate, delicate vineyard peach aromas, grapefruit zests, attractive spicyness, salty minerals, lively acidity, elegant texture.

70 % Welschriesling, 30 % Chardonnay

About Kracher:

Located in the Seewinkel, an area in the Burgenland region of Austra, along the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl, Weinlaubenhof Alois Kracher is in possession of a microclimate uniquely suited to the production of Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese wines. 32 hectares of vineyards are planted with Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Traminer, Muskat Ottonel and Scheurebe. Kracher is internationally regarded as one of the finest dessert wine makes. After Alois Kracher passed away in December 2007, his 27 year-old son Gerhard took over responsibility of winemaking. He manages the winery with the same strength, firm will and consequence as his famous father once did.
