Sweet wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Welschriesling from Burgenland, Austria. 10.5% ABV. Vegan
Intense golden yellow. Delicate honey aromas with dried prune and fig are complicated by subtle dill, candied orange peel and a touch of sponge cake. Peach jelly, honey, and quince are elegantly framed with juicy acid. Nuances of caramel combine with ripe apricot on the finish of this well-balanced sweet wine. Already offering wonderful drinking pleasure.
Producer Profile Kracher
The Kracher Winery lies in the Seewinkel area of Austria´s Burgenland. Here, through the evaporative periods of Lake Neusiedl, the evening fog and the warm Pannonian climate, continuous warm-humid weather patterns are dominant and, therefore, allow for Botrytis cinerea to be generated. The special love with which he treated the different grape varieties, along with his tireless discussions and efforts that encompassed both tradition and innovation, plus his courage to walk - representing a small family business - amongst the big wine dynasties of the world brought Alois Kracher countless awards and vast recognition. Not the least of the tributes was his being honoured by Great Britain´s renowned Wine Magazine with the coveted "Wine Maker of the Year" title for an impressive seven times - in 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2006 and 2008.
