Kracher Trockenbeeren Auslese No. 6
Trockenbeerenauslese (“dried berries selection”) comes from grapes affected by noble rot, a condition that allows the grapes to dry out completely, shriveling like raisins. When pressed, the juice from these grapes is sweet and concentrated, creating rich, complex wines. The Trockenbeerenauslese Grande Cuvée has a bouquet of juicy stone fruit and tangerines. Orange and citrus characterize the palate, with a delicate herbal spice and mineral, salty finish.
