2002 Alois Kracher Chardonnay/Welschriesling Grande Cuvée TBA #7 Nouvelle Vague (375ml)

SKU #1157245 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The #7 Grande Cuvee Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague –as usual from Chardonnay and Welschriesling – smells of apple jelly, pineapple, litchi, mango and banana with overtones of cherry and marzipan. Full and rich on the palate, this handles its enormous sweetness by preserving juicy essences of its diverse fruits and displaying only a subtle, lovely hint of caramelization (although more will surely emerge as the wine matures). Even the marzipan note seems to be imbedded with fresh almonds, and a subtle sense of citrus zest and berry skin tartness is woven into the whole. The nearly endless, palate saturating finish reprises most of the aforementioned themes, and with the past as guide one can safely predict there is much else to come. (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2005)

96 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep golden yellow. Initially closed on the nose, but showed delicate apple, cinnamon and soft leafy aromas as it opened in the glass. Notes of pumpernickel and smoky oak add complexity to the clear, pure core of fruit. Thick and opulent but fine-grained and harmonious. Finishes with extremely persistent, bell-clear fruits and minerals. Although expressive and seamless today, this wine will require several more years to show its inherent complexity due to its tremendous concentration. Drink 2010 to 2035. Inner quote mark (12/2005)
