Ice Wine 2019 Liliac &...

Weinlaubenhof Kracher is located south-east of Vienna in Burgenland, a region characterised by gravelly soils with varying limestone content transported by the Danube<br />River. The presence of this river together with Lake Neusiedl creates a warm humid climate ideal for the formation of noble rot on the grapes produced in the area. Kracher is<br />based in Illmitz, on the Hungarian border, and has been run since 2007 by Alois' son Gerhard Kracher, with the help of his wife Yvonne: it is Austria's leading winery for<br />sweet wines. The varieties used are Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Traminer, Scheurebe, Muskat-Ottonel, and in some vintages also Zweigelt. Kracher harvests and vinifies<br />small batches, using a number series to distinguish them: a higher number corresponds to a higher sugar concentration in the wine. Two types of wine are produced: Cuvée,<br />sweet wines of medium concentration, Beerenauslese and Eiswein; Kollektion, very concentrated sweet wines produced according to two different methods: Zwischen den<br />Seen (traditional with fermentation in steel or wooden barrels) and Nouvelle Vague (modern with the use of new barriques). WEINLAUBENHOF KRACHER has also initiated<br />a collaboration with the Liliac Winery in Transylvania, in order to exploit the climatic peculiarities of the Lechinta region that are optimal for the production of Eiswein.<br /><br />Varieties: Neuburger, Pinot Grigio, Muskat Ottonel.<br /><br />Vineyards: Weinlaubenhof Kracher has entered into a partnership with the Liliac Winery in Transylvania (Lechinta region) where the climatic peculiarities are optimal for the<br />production of Eiswein.<br /><br />Vinification: Liliac &amp; Kracher Ice Wine ferments and matures in stainless steel tanks.<br /><br />Characteristic properties: Liliac &amp; Kracher Ice Wine has an uncommon persistence on the palate, which, however, is never excessive thanks to the fresh final notes of<br />pineapple and peach.
