Kracher Number 3 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen Den Seen 1998 (0.375L)
- Dessert Wine
The orange/yellow-colored 1998 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen Number 3 explodes from the glass with spices, lychee nuts, roses, and candied white raisins. It is gorgeously focused, fresh, medium-bodied, and is packed with smoky minerals as well as loads of jammy yellow fruits. This exceptionally long wine reveals a firm tannic backbone, a rarity for a white wine but typical of its varietal. It has an immensely impressive combination of power, concentration, balance, and elegance. - WA
