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. This is what provides the basis for the fantastic sweet wines such as Beerenauslese.

Wine EnthusiastA musky note of botrytis makes for a heady, lifted nose, followed by aromas of dark fir honey and candied pineapple. The palate adds an almost grassy, herbal tinge to the proceedings, creating an intriguing edge amid the killer sweetness. The mouthfeel is dense and sticky, but bright. On the finish an array of fruit breaks loose: tart apple, apple jelly, candied grapefruit peel and candied lemon. The sweet finish lingers.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cuvée Beerenauslese is intense and concentrated on the nose, with ripe yet fresh fruit and orange aromas. On the palate, this is a rich, concentrated and very aromatic BA made from Chardonnay and Welschriesling. The wine is elegant but very sweet and clear and should be aged for 10 or more years.
