Kracher Number 11 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen Den Seen 2006 (0.375L)
- Dessert Wine
From Wine Advocate 96 Points
The 2006 #11 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen delivers a thickly concentrated yet razor sharp and refreshing essence of this grapes endearing virtues: high toned sage, bergamot and mint; pink grapefruit and oranges; peach preserves and glazed pineapple; honey and nut oils. With silken-smooth refinement, nearly levitating gracefulness, sorbet-like refreshment, and an infectious energy that carries you up into its finish, this is Scheu out on the dance floor, dressed in black tie, showing off without missing a beat. Given this wine’s sheer sweetness not to mention overall intensity, it will be capable of fascinating pairings with a diverse range of desserts. And it should dazzle for two decades or more.
From Wine Spectator 95 Points
Thick, rich and ripe, with an aroma of orange blossom and concentrated flavors of baked pineapple, peach, pear and spice. The long, lush finish drips with honey and touches of cream, all backed up by firm acidity.
