Winemaker Notes

Sweet oak, botrytis, and jellied apricots emanate from the glass of the 2000 #9 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen. A diabetic’s nightmare (6.5% alcohol, 347.8 grams residual sugar/liter, and 7.6 grams/liter total acidity), this full-bodied wine slathers itself onto the palate, revealing syrupy layers of jellied peaches and spiced dried apricots. It has unbelievable power,density, and length. Projected maturity: now-2045.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000 #8 Welschriesling Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen (7.5% alcohol, 314.2 grams residual sugar/liter, and 7.2 grams/liter total acidity) displays scents of smoky apricots, mangoes, botrytis-laden papayas, and passion fruit. White pepper, jammy peaches, pears, assorted exotic fruits and a myriad of spices are found in its viscous, syrup-like core. Immensely complex, dense, and outrageously concentrated, its interminable flavor profile refuses to relinquish its grasp on the palate. Drink it over the next 35-45+ years.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Not as showy today as some of its peers, yet this promises plenty in the future. Thick and full of apricot, coconut and citrus notes, intensely sweet and offset by a lively structure, it's balanced and complex with a wonderful sense of harmony. The finish just melts away.

Kracher Kracher Winery Winery Image

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.

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.
