Kracher's Grande Cuvée is often the epitome of a vintage. This blend of Welschriesling and Chardonnay shows the structure of the year as well as its wonderful acidity. It is an exceptional wine, its botrytis so carefully fitted into the rich fruit. The lush, sweet orange flavor istamed by acidity, which provides a fitting lift to the finish.
