Kracher Cuvee Auslese (375ML half-bottle) 2008
Other Dessert from Austria
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.
International Wine CellarBrilliant 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.
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. View all Kracher Wines

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
