Tba #10 Scheurebe Zds Alois Kracher 2002

External Review by Epic Cellars:

#10 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen yes, it s the third wine this vintage with the same designation has only 6.5% alcohol and is one of the most amazing elixirs of Scheurebe ever captured in bottle. Pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peppermint, honey, distilled black fruits, herbal essences, and sheer ethereal botrytism soar from the glass. In the mouth this is virtually gelatinous in fact, more like an Esszencia even than the 2003 #1 with a totally uncanny sense of lift and lightness. Sheer material density and searingly high acidity are tamed like the fable unicorn. Red and black fruit distillates, herbal/floral essences, deep, rich nut oils, generously juicy citrus .. all that and more is in the finish. This combines the sheer essence of Scheurebe found in #5 with some of the transmogrified, mysterious depth of #6, plus the ineffable character of an Esszencia.

#5 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen displays vividly Scheurebe-typical aromas of sage, peppermint, grapefruit and honey. Startlingly bright and juicy on entry, this builds strength and powers to intense, scintillating flavors of grape... Robert Parker. A Scheurebe wine from Burgenland in Austria. 2002 Alois Kracher #5 Scheurebe Z D S Trockenbeerenauslese 750ml
