2001 Alois Kracher Chardonnay TBA #7 Nouvelle Vague - Austria, Burgenland, Neusiedlersee (12/2/2011)
Opened by Allred. Paired with various desserts.This was the first Kracher from the 2001 vintage that I've had and it was very fine. Of the nearly 2 dozen Krachers that I've had over the years only the 1998 and 2002 #12's were clearly superior. Golden color. Thick and rich. Candied pear notes with mango and papaya. Ultra sweet but the acidity balances it out. 94-95 points.
