Candied pineapple and candied lemon zest on the nose coalesce on the palate around a wonderfully tart core of purest passion fruit. This is rich and tense, taut but sweet, aromatic and heady. Each drop sends sweet ripples of aroma across the palate, while lovely citrus pulls the focus. The finish has a lovely herbaceous edge of bergamot and citrus foliage. Lovely tension. Drink until 2035.
Beautiful, golden fruit that glows in the autumn sunshine! Very rich and lush, but with the acidity to carry all this opulence. The finish is as complex as it is fresh with some savage beauty. Drink or hold.
The 2015 Trockenbeerenauslese No 6 Grande Cuvee Nouvelle Vague is made mostly from Chardonnay, yet includes 30% Welschriesling, all aged 18 months in larger oak tanks. It’s a vibrant, racy beauty that has perfumed notes of tangerines, passion fruits, mint, and honey in its full-bodied yet clean, silky, beautifully balanced style. This is yet another dessert wine from Kracher that packs an incredible amount of sweetness and character in a fresh, balanced, elegant package that’s a joy to drink. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-3 decades.
The 2015 Trockenbeerenauslese No 6 "Grande Cuvée" Nouvelle Vague is a blend of barrel-fermented Chardonnay (70%) and Welschriesling (30%) that was aged in a 1,000-liter oak vat, both parts for 18 months. The wine offers a very clear, precise, fresh, intense and really distinctive bouquet with aromas of stewed quinces and lemons. On the palate, this is a highly delicate and perfectly balanced TBA with great finesse and purity (despite its high concentration). The acidity is very fine and persistently salty, and if there are any tannins, these are very fine too. A great elegant, finessed, beautifully balanced TBA.
About the Producer: Korbel Champagne Cellars
Korbel Champagne Cellars is a winery in Sonoma County. Known for its sparkling wines, Corbel produces a wide range of still wines from a variety of international varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Korbel company also produces a wide range of brandies. The company was founded in 1882 by the three Korbel brothers from what was then called Bohemia in Europe. They started making sparkling wines using the traditional method of French champenoise. This remains the cornerstone of the production. The most expensive sparkling wine on the list, Le Premier, is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Corbel Brut is the most popular wine in the range, made from a variety of grape varieties, the wine should be affordable and according to preferences. The winery was purchased in 1954 by Adolph Heck and in 1984 it was acquired by Adolph's son Gary. Under Heck's ownership, annual production increased from 150,000 cases to 1.3 million, and in 2011 Korbel became the twelfth-largest manufacturer in the United States. Champagne is a protected name under the rules of the French nomenclature for sparkling wines. However, Korbel's long history advocates the use of the Champagne label, as this practice predates the introduction of these laws. Korbel sparkling wines have been served at six US presidential inaugurations, and Korbel brandy is especially popular in Wisconsin. Korbel Champagne Cellars also founded the Russian River Brewing Company as a brewery, although they no longer own it.
