Auslese Cuvée is a sweet wine from the historic Austrian cellar Kracher, which presents itself to the eye with a straw yellow color of great intensity, while on the nose there are aromas of banana, lychee, wildflower honey accompanied by mineral notes. On the palate it's sweet, but with freshness and flavor, as well as an aromatic complexity that refers to exotic fruit and lemon.
The Kracher family's winery of the same name is located in the Austrian region of Burgenland, not far from Vienna, characterized by a cultural and naturalistic context of great charm, although less known than other areas. In this region the strong afternoon winds are accompanied by a considerable night humidity, due to the proximity to Lake Neusiedler, favoring the presence of Botrytis cinerea commonly defined "noble rot", significant for viticulture as the fungus attacks the grape depriving it of water in favor of a higher concentration of sugars and aromas. The wines that are produced are also defined as botrytized, and in this particular sector the Kracher winery is one of excellence. With its 7.5 hectares of vineyards, since 2007 it has been managed by the young Gerhard who succeeded his father Alois who died prematurely, known for its concentrated and complex wines of great quality, from the cultivation of welschriesling, chardonnay, traminer, scheurebe, muskat grapes, ottonel, and other experimental varieties. The quantities are very limited and directly proportional to the quality of the products, which differ in different types according to the concentration: cuvée, sweet wines of medium concentration, Beerenauslese and Eiswein; Kollektion, sweet wines, very concentrated, produced according to two different methods: the traditional one or "Zwischen den Seen", with fermentation in steel or in large wooden barrels, and the innovative or "Nouvelle Vague", with the use of new barriques.
Auslese Cuvée is produced from Chardonnay and Welschriesling grapes, carefully selected and harvested late, vinified in steel and aged in bottle. A superb wine that perfectly combines sweetness and softness with a sensation of freshness that pleasantly envelops the palate. Ideal with cream-based desserts, as well as spicy oriental dishes and medium-aged cheeses.
