Trockenbeerenauslese 2002Current Wines | Wines from 2002
The Trockenbeerenauslese or TBA for short, is the most precious of the Austrian dessert wines. It is exclusively made from grapes which have shrivelled and dried out like raisins due to the affection of noble rot. This leads to a must concentration 32 degrees KMW (sugar content of almost 40 %) at minimum and it requires a highly skilled expert cellarman to achieve and maintain harmony between the aroma composing elements. The establishment of a well-ballanced relationship between them is an art known only by winemakers with a comprehensive experience in this special field.
This very sweet TBA with its spicy aroma and its fullness is a typical Sämling with an high but elegant acidity.
Goes especially well with aged cheese or when served along a sweet dessert at a big banquet. Many people also enjoy it on its own, having a glass of an exceptional wine in the evening for example.
This wine already gives a lot of drinking pleasure and is ready to drink now. It can however be stored almost indefinitely because its concentrated constituents have a very positive effect on the further aging process.
