Trockenbeerenauslese 2015Current Wines | Wines from 2015
The Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA) 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 sugar content of almost 40 % and it requires expert skills of a winemaker to achieve and maintain harmony between the aroma composing elements. Establishing this well-ballanced relation is a craft only mastered by winemakers with a comprehensive experience in this special field.
This very sweet TBA with its spicy aroma and its fullness is aflavourful Cuveé of Sämling and Welschriesling. It shines withhigh but elegant acidity and overall noble appearance.
This wine is especially suited for aged cheese or when servedalong a sweet dessert at a big banquet. Many people also enjoy iton its own, having a glass of an exceptional wine in the eveningfor example.
This wine gives a lot of drinking pleasure already. It can however bestored almost indefinitely because its concentrated constituents havea very positive effect on the further aging process.
