CONTENTS
No.1 : Trockenbeerenauslese Zweigelt "Nouvelle Vague" 2020 | 95+ Points WA

"It is intense and finely concentrated yet also super pure, fresh and elegant on the exotic, tropical nose with candied orange zest and sugared pink grapefruit aromas intertwined with notes of dragon fruits, lychee, plums, cherries, fresh strawberries, raspberries, coconut ( Bounty) and nougat notes." | Grape variety: 100% Zweigelt |Alcohol: 10.5%

No.2 : Trockenbeerenauslese Traminer "Nouvelle Vague" 2020 | 96 Points WA

"Lush and generous on the dense yet fresh and even stimulating palate, this is a very elegant and remarkably refined yet intense Traminer with a concentrated but mouthwatering finish." | Grape variety: 100% Traminer| Alcohol: 11.0%

No.3 : Trockenbeerenauslese Scheurebe "Zwischen den Seen" 2020 | 96 Points WA

"...opens with a clear, intensely aromatic and fruit-driven bouquet of passion fruit, lemons and grapefruits as well as candied pineapples, mango and maracuja. Dense, lush and round on the palate, this is a sweet and intense but savory , lively, very elegant and tropical TBA with typical Scheurebe features and a stimulatingly tart and bitter finish." | Grape variety: 100% Scheurebe | Alcohol: 10.5%

No.4 : Trockenbeerenauslese Grande Cuvée "Nouvelle Vague" 2020 | 98 Points WA

"...opens with an intense and concentrated bouquet with spicy quince aromas, lemon chutney, candied lemons, ripe and lush apricots and pineapples, hints of nougat, caramel and salt. It is very deep and complex but also refined, fresh and very elegant! Round, intense and highly refined on the palate, this is a saline and elegant, apparently weightless Grande Cuvée that develops a spectacularly long and intense finish with salts and concentrated fruits such as melons, apricots, lemons, quinces and grapefruit. The aftertaste is intense and very long but of great finesse and elegance. This is a gorgeous wine, indeed, that is stunning a day after the opening and will need about a decade or more to gain even more complexity." | Grape variety: 70% Welschriesling and 30% Chardonnay | Alcohol: 10.0%

No.5 : Trockenbeerenauslese Rosenmuskateller "Nouvelle Vague" 2020 | 97 Points WA

No.6 : Trockenbeerenauslese Welschriesling "Zwischen den Seen" 2020 | 97+ Points WA

"...pure and intense on the concentrated, saline and caramelly nose that displays candied lemon, strawberry, raspberry and ripe pear aromas. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated on the palate, this is an elegant, refined, finely saline and beautifully juicy TBA with sweet pear and peach aromas and a long, intense, crystalline and mouthwatering finish." | Grape variety: 100% Welschriesling | Alcohol: 8.5%

Vineyard for 2020 Kracher Kollektion

Kracher is the reference when it comes to superlative dessert wines from Austria. Kracher makes a very wide range of dessert wines in Burgenland, including at the Neusiedlersee where spectacular botrytis wines can be made. For three generations, the Kracher family has been producing unique wines, recognized by the greatest international critics.

The British magazine "Wine" has voted Kracher "Sweet Winemaker of the Year" nine times and the German magazine Feinschmecker has also voted him "Winemaker of the Year" in 2017. Kracher is the first Austrian wine on the "Place de Bordeaux"

In Illmitz, in eastern Austria, Kracher enjoys the special microclimate of Lake Neusiedl, which almost every year provides ideal conditions for the creation of noble rot. The Krachers know how to do magic with this like no other: their wines have a fantastic balance between sweet and sour, making them incredibly concentrated as well as beautifully light-footed and sparkling. Kracher wants to make drinkable wines that can be used gastronomically. Gerhard succeeds well in this, just as he succeeds every year - despite the high degree of noble rot - in allowing the character of the grape variety to still shine through beautifully recognizable in his wines. Kracher makes two varieties of wine at Trockenbeerenauslese. The noble sweet wines with the designation 'Zwischen den Seeen' are fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks or large casks. The wines with the addition of 'Nouvelle Vague' mature exclusively in new barriques. The Weinlaubenhof Kracher is world famous and their top examples can compete with the most beautiful sweet wines from all over the world, such as those from Chateau d'Yquem, wine estate Robert Weil and Egon Müller Scharzhofberg. Kracher has won countless prizes and medals with their wines and has been named 'Late Harvest winemaker of the Year' many times by authoritative magazines and institutions.
