2017 Kracher Cuvee Beerenauslese
2017 Kracher Cuvee Beerenauslese Dessert wine from Burgenland, Austria.
The source of Austria’s finest botrytized sweet wines, Burgenland covers a lofty portion of Austria’s wine producing real estate. It encompasses the smaller regions of Neusiedlersee, Neusiedlersee-Hügelland, Mittelburgenland and Südburgenland. The latter two are most associated with their exceptional red wines. The region as a whole produces no shortage of important whites.
Neusiedlersee, named for the lake that it surrounds to the east, is home to a great diversity of grape varieties. The region’s most notable wines, however, are the botrytis-infected, sweet versions.
