2017 Kracher Cuvee Auslese (375ml)

Welschriesling from Burgenland, Austria


The 2017 Cuvée Beerenauslese is super precise and fresh on the coolish and lemon-scented nose. Sweet and noble on the palate, this is a highly elegant and concentrated BA with remarkable finesse and freshness. Very salty and even piquant but with beautiful concentration. Absolutely gorgeous. Tasted in Illmitz, December 2018.

Hints of creamiest vanilla and caramelized pear stream generously from the glass. The palate deepens these impressions with almost emollient force. All of this encompassing richness is countered by wonderfully sharp freshness and a tingling background of peppery, almost nettly spice. Such lovely balance and such lasting savor!

A real, exotic-fruit compote (plenty of papaya!) with a very attractive combination of richness and freshness. Long. succulent finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
