2004 Alois Kracher Traminer "No. 8 - Nouvelle Vague" Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA) (375ml)

SKU #1276830 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Like his earlier Traminer (Nummer 3), this wine is layered with dryness as well as richness. It is intense and very concentrated, a great combination of spice, acidity and syrup. There is a touch of vanilla and coconut as well as flavors of ripe pears. (RV)  (11/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Concentrated ripe apricot, peach and honey flavors are seductive and very creamy. Structured, fresh and balanced, with a finish redolent of tropical fruits and baked pineapple. (KM)  (6/2007)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium golden yellow. Traminer aromas of dried rose petal and orange zest are backed by smoke and fresh tobacco leaf. Rich in extract but currently dominated by oak and not yet in focus. Best today on the very long finish, which features gunflint, lichee and clove. This will require patience for its various components to harmonize. (PM)  (11/2006)

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.
