This was on clearance for fifteen bones – a 187ml bottle was a striking fifteen dollars but Kracher is a highly reputable producer – one of the finest dessert wine producers in the world, so why not?
Honey, peaches, sugar, and dare I even say grape on the nose.
Spicy peach pie filling on the palate. Orange blossom, orange marmalade, peach jam, white pepper,
More of that spicy peach on the finish, cinnamon, even some clove, maybe some candied apple,
The bottom line here is Kracher makes fantastic wines at premium prices – this bottle is your chance to get two small servings for under $20. I've had some of the higher end Kracher offerings and while I do feel they are stronger, is a half bottle worth $80 – more than double the price per ounce? I can't say for sure, but if you're starting out with dessert wine – this is the place to start if you're interested (and you should be) in Kracher.
