Winemaker Notes

Medium golden-yellow. A bouquet of delicate herbs and spices, with a touch of nougat over yellow fruit notes, with subtle aromas of honeyed and spiced characters. The palate is succulent with mineral characters and stone-fruit notes over vibrant acidity, leading to ripe peach flavors on the finish. This wine has a long future ahead.

Blend: 60% Chardonnay, 40% Welschriesling

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
60% Chardonnay and 40% Welschriesling make up for the bright amber-colored 2010 Grande Cuvée Trockenbeerenauslese No 6 Nouvelle Vague offers a deep and spicy rather than fruity, concentrated and very generous bouquet with chestnut and kumquat flavors. Concentrated, piquant, intense and really noble in its texture, this is a very elegant, firmly structured, long and more tannic TBA (compared to the Zwischen den Seen wines). This wine has a long, complex and aromatic finish. It is still sharp in its piquancy and needs some years to become more elegant and finesse-full. Quite powerful and fiery.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Kracher always produces a blend in his range of TBAs. This is a hugely rich wine that’s densely textured and with opulent fruit. Flavors of sweet oranges, honey and lemon juice makes up this impressively appealing wine. It does need to age, though, so drink from 2017.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Butter cream notes abound in this big and juicy sweetie, featuring ripe pear, apple and peach flavors, with some candied ginger notes. Viscous and spicy at midpalate, this delivers a long and custardy, yet crisp, finish that goes on and on. Welschriesling and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2045. 225 cases made.

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.

Burgenland

The source of Austria’s finest botrytized sweet wines, Burgenland covers a lofty portion of Austria's wine producing real estate. It encompasses the smaller regions of Neusiedlersee, Neusiedlersee-Hügelland, Mittelburgenland and Südburgenland. The latter two are most associated with their exceptional red wines. The region as a whole produces no shortage of important whites.

Neusiedlersee, named for the lake that it surrounds to the east, is home to a great diversity of grape varieties. The region’s most notable wines, however, are the botrytis-infected, sweet versions.

Neusiedlersee-Hügelland, which wraps the lake on its western side, includes the town of Rust, a historically esteemed wine community. Its close proximity to the lake’s fog and mist make it another source of some of the more prestigious botrytized wines. Neusiedlersee-Hügelland also produces fine Blaufränkisch, Pinot Blanc, Neuburger and Grüner Veltliner, though a label will usually name the more general, Burgenland, so as not to confuse it with its eastern cousin, Neusiedlersee, across the lake.

Blaufränkisch is well suited to and makes up over half of the vineyard area in Mittelburgenland. The region’s hills and plateaus, which are composed of variations in schist, loess and clay-limestone, produce high quality reds with interesting diversity.

Südburgenland, also known for its deep, complex and age-worthy Blaufränkisch, is beginning to turn out some alluring whites from Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc).

Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
