2004 Weinlaubenhof Alois Kracher Kollektion Chardonnay Trockenbeerenauslese Nummer 9

This is some truly phenomenal dessert wine by the esteemed Alois Kracher in Austria, who has since passed but was a close friend and business partner of Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non fame in California. Imagine the wines when those two hung out! Quite the delicious nose on this - peach, tropical fruit, butterscotch, sweet pecans, honey, white oak, beechwood, and lemon. Lovely, coppery color to this wine too. Full, rich mouthfeel on the palate. Peaches, vanilla, HONEY, apricots, white wood, and macadamia nuts with a delicious crème brulée finish. RICH.
