K&L Notes

Kracher is a wine producer located in the Burgenland region of Austria, where the estate's vineyards span from the village of Illmitz to the shores of Lake Neusiedl. The terroir here is perfect for the spread of botrytis or 'noble rot', and Kracher make a range of lusciously sweet Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese wines. Kracher makes a wide range of wines, including Auslese, Eiswein, sparkling and dry white and red wines. The flagship wines, however, are the Trockenbeerenauslese wines that fall under two labels – Zwischen den Seen (meaning "in between the lakes") and Nouvelle Vague.

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
