Tasting Note:

“A fabulously concentrated and beautifully balanced TBA, this is like diving into a fjord of tropical fruit (both fresh and dried), the vibrant acidity and salty minerality exactly counterbalancing the lushness. Very long, creamy and complete finish. A truly grand cuvee of 60% welschriesling and 40% chardonnay. Drink or hold. 98/100” - James Suckling

“A blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Welschriesling, the 2019 Trockenbeerenauslese Grande Cuvee is a pale amber color. It gives up explosive scents of manuka honey, sultanas, pineapple upside-down cake, and allspice with hints of orange blossom and lime cordial. Very sweet, rich, and yet with amazing tension, it has a fantastically decadent texture and the finish goes on forever. 96/100” - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

“Amber and burnt orange in colour, with powerful luscious apricots on the attack. Sweet silky texture, clashes in the best possible way between luxurious sweetness and biting orange peel and lime zest acidity, giving the contrast, and light and shade that you really need in a sweet wine. 6,000 bottles of Kracher in half bottles on the place. Serve cool. Another first timer on the Bordeaux system this year, 7.1g/l acidity, 205g/l residual sugar, fermented and aged in 100% new oak. 96/100” - Jane Anson
