      Winemaker Notes

      The wines from the Weinlaubenhof have long been in a class of their own. Practically no other sweet wines have reached such a high level of recognition worldwide and only a few have come close to the high ratings Kracher wines continuously receive. Around the world, Kracher has become the synonym for noble sweet wines of ultimate perfection.

      Pair the Grande Cuvée Trockenbeerenauslese "Nouvelle Vague" No. 6 with tarte tatin, sliced pancakes served with plum compote and Époisses de Bourgogne.

      Wine Spectator
      Terrific flavors of apricot, hazelnut, butter and vanilla pick up a smoky element on the finish. It's the seamless texture and lively structure that complete the overall impression. More elegant than some of the Kracher lineup, showing well now.
      RP 94
      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The amber-colored 2001 Grande Cuvée Trockenbeerenauslese No 6 Nouvelle Vague displays a beautifully matured, malty and pumpernickel bouquet with chestnuts and toasty flavors of dark caramel, dried apricots and walnuts. Very transparent, highly elegant and finesse-full on the palate, with a very salty and firmly structured finish, this is a fascinating sweet wine that has matured much quicker than other vintages. "2001 was a very warm, but also very late vintage because botrytis came very late," says Gerhard Kracher, who had 20-year-old vines then.

      Kracher, Austria
      2001 Grand Cuvee Nouvelle Vague TBA No. 6 (375ML)
      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.

      Appreciated for superior wines made from indigenous varieties, Austria should be on the radar of anyone who loves bright, elegant wines. These food-friendly, cool-climate reds and whites are quintessentially European in style with racy acidity, moderate alcohol, and tart, fresh fruit flavors. Austrian wines are prized for their near-uniform dedication to excellence, and it is now difficult to find a bad bottle.

      Rather than joining in on the worldwide trend to plant international varieties, Austria has chosen to stake its reputation mainly on its native grapes. Grüner Veltliner, known for its racy acidity and vegetal and peppery aromatics, is the most important, comprising nearly a third of Austrian wines. Riesling in Austria is high in quality but not quantity, planted on less than 5% of the country’s vineyard land. Unlike their German counterparts, Austrian Rieslings are almost always dry, with higher alcohol, slightly lower acidity, and flavors that lean more toward the citrus end of the fruit spectrum. Field blends of these two grapes along with Pinot Blanc and other white varieties known as Gemischter Satz are popular for daily consumption in Vienna. Red wines include light, tart-fruited Zweigelt, juicy and spicy Blaufränkisch, and Pinot-Noir-like Saint Laurent.
