1998 Alois Kracher "No. 8 - Nouvelle Vague" Traminer Trockenbeerenauslese (375ml)

SKU #1276831 94 points Wine Spectator

 Wow. Intense and smoky, this Traminer TBA shows tropical fruit and botrytis elements, like pineapple and citrus peel, on a racy structure. It evolves nicely across the palate to the finish, where it turns to smoke and tobacco nuances. (BS)  (6/2001)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1998 Traminer Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague Number 8 is a gold colored wine with an intensely spicy nose. This is a scrumptious wine, packed with white peaches, freshly cracked pepper, apricots, herbs, and botrytis flavors. It is seamless, harmonious, and has the distinctive tannic mark of its varietal in its botrytis-laced finish. Anticipated maturity: now-2025. (PR)  (4/2001)

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.
