The 2017 vintage was so short that Gerard Kracher included wines in this BA that are usually destined for his higher-level “Collection” range. The botrytis was also especially good, he says, and he moved quickly to pick the grapes while the acidity was still high. The result is honey-smooth and concentrated, a blend of chardonnay’s green-apple flavors and welschriesling’s bright herbal notes preserved with clarity and precision. The sweetness acts like amber, capturing a moment of perfect ripeness in perpetuity. W&S
Wonderfully plush and structured, with deep aromas of spiced marmalade, barley sugar, apricot jam and dried pears. This fills the mouth with refreshing, serious flavours of honey, tarte tatin and exotic fruits which linger throughout the significant tail.
