2001 Alois Kracher Scheurebe No. 9 Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen (375ml) (Previously $80)

SKU #1276827 94 points Wine Spectator

 Candied grapefruit, clove and honey notes are backed by a firm structure. It's all balanced, finishing cleanly. Thick and lush, yet I don't find the focused flavors here of the Chardonnay and Welschriesling. (BS)  (8/2004)

 The most concentrated of the range of TBAs made by Kracher in 2001, this is almost too sweet, almost too concentrated. It is hugely liquorous, with very low alcohol because the sweetness of the grapes was too much for the yeasts, which gives it a character almost of intensely sweet, very pure grape juice. (RV)  (5/2004)

 Very very sweet and rich syrup - rosehip syrup? There is, yet again, a hint of rose petals! but there is good acidity. This wine should be destined for a relatively long life. 18/20 points  (5/2003)

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.
