Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen Den Seen No.5 Kracher 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The pale green-gold color of Kracher’s 2006 #5 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen is an omen. Seldom has Scheurebe displayed so refined and ethereal an aromatic concentration of herbs and flowers: catnip, thyme, chamomile and borage rather than the more usual sage and its coarsely pungent flower. Buoyant, sleek, and cucumber-cool on the palate, with lemon and white grapefruit balancing its honeyed sweetness, this finishes strikingly long on invigorating, mouth-cleansing refreshment. A joy to drink now on its own, it will be fascinating to follow – and perhaps cautiously apply at the table – over the next 5-6 years...94" WA 02/09 "Thick and rich, with plenty of spicy notes behind the green apple, pear and apricot flavors. Vanilla and glazed pineapple notes fill the intensely creamy finish. Drink now through 2018..93." WS 05/09
