2006 TBA No. 2 Muskat Ottonel
Glazed dried apricots and candied melon rind are reflected in the nose of Kracher‘s green-gold 2006 #2 Muskat Ottonel Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen. This offers a lot of delicacy and sheer refreshment for all of its sweetness (and 170 grams of residual sugar); a subtly waxy texture; and a greenhouse-like inner-mouth amalgam of foliage and flowers. The buoyant finish is cooling in its suggestions of honeydew melon, apricot nectar and aromatic green herbs. I suspect this will be best enjoyed over the next 2-3 years, although – unlike Luis Kracher himself – it may well live to good-naturedly make a fool of me, as he delighted in conspiring with his wines to do.
