Kracher Zweigelt TBA No.1 2004

Demi - Bouteille (37.5 cl)

92/100 PP

"At 13% alcohol, and with Riesling-like acidity, it’s no wonder that despite 168 grams of residual sugar, Kracher’s 2004 #1 Zweigelt Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague is notable for how little sweetness it displays. This tawny-colored libation drinks like a liqueur of candied blood orange and tangerine rind, cinnamon, and dried cherries. For all of its lushness of texture and its alcohol, it gives a light and very frisky account of itself, and the clean meatiness and leathery notes that emerge with increasing prominence the longer the wine warms in its glass, hold a fascination akin to that of red Burgundy. The liqueur-like finish is nonetheless refreshing, and rendered more so by a subtly saline streak.

The inspiring and otherwise irrepressible Alois “Luis” Kracher died last December 5, after a nearly year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. His son Gerhard, 27, and still-active father will continue the work of this exemplary estate. Note: I tasted the Kracher wines of 2005 and 2006 for the reviews above this Spring, and the 2004s in late 2007 and again this Spring. Kracher was restrained in his early judgment of the challenging 2004 vintage, in which he could not start picking noble rot until November, and continued until Christmas. “The first selections were wonderful; the second passage classic, good; the third – kaput,” was how he described it. “From two months of work,” he continued, “we netted 6,000 liters of quality T.B.A.,” from which he promises a modest-sized collection so that – as he puts it – he wouldn’t have to apologize for a vintage that is good but not great. I don’t believe that this was a tactical confession on his part. Kracher was genuinely surprised by the quality that emerged as his 2004 collection evolved, and in the end, he bottled the same number of Trockenbeerenauslesen – ten – as in the manifestly more classic botrytis vintage of 2005."
