2015 Kracher Trockenbeerenauslese No. 6 Grande Cuvée 'Nouvelle Vague'. Burgenland, AUSTRIA. 375ml

 

10.0% Alc/Vol; 238.8 g/l RS; 7.3 g/l TA. 70% Chardonnay and 30% Welschriesling, the Chardonnay fermented and matured for 18 months in new French oak barriques, the Weslchriesling likewise but in one new 1000 litre oak cask.

’The 2015 Grande Cuvée TBA (Nummer 6) is another highlight in this range. All the best elements of the Kracher house style come together in a sweet wine that dazzles from start to finish. Orange confit, spice, passion fruit and exotic floral notes all grace this exquisite 70% Chardonnay and 30% Welschriesling blend.’ 96 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020

‘The 2015 Trockenbeerenauslese No 6 "Grande Cuvée" Nouvelle Vague is a blend of barrel-fermented Chardonnay (70%) and Welschriesling (30%) that was aged in a 1,000-liter oak vat, both parts for 18 months. The wine offers a very clear, precise, fresh, intense and really distinctive bouquet with aromas of stewed quinces and lemons. On the palate, this is a highly delicate and perfectly balanced TBA with great finesse and purity (despite its high concentration). The acidity is very fine and persistently salty, and if there are any tannins, these are very fine too. A great elegant, finessed, beautifully balanced TBA. Drink 2018-2050.' 95 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, February 2018.
