xxx | 167 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) other vintages where there are as many as fifteen different wines, each one numbered. As you work your way higher up through the numbers, it's like turning up a dial of sugar levels (which are not necessarily perceptible) and depth. Some are red, but most are white, yet all are worthy of our attention. What's more, unlike many sweeter styles of wine, they pair remarkably well with food. A great example is the #6 Grand Cuvee Nouvelle v ague (70% Chardonnay and 30% Welschriesling fermented and aged in a combination of new barrels and 1000 liter vats), as the wine is remarkably balanced and fresh with a saline-minerality that perfectly cleanses the palate after each sip. To experience a level of balanced decadence that most have never witnessed, the Welschriesling Zwischen Den Seen Trockenbeerenauslese #11 takes the exotic sweetness that only botrytis can impart, contrasted against the stimulating acidity of Welschriesling. The combination will send chills down your spine while pleasing all of the senses. It's time to open our minds and our palates to what is possible through the balancing act and sweet perfections from Kracher. ✦ Kracher rating bottle Cuvee a uslese 2017 (375ml) (325132) $29 Grande Cuvee Nouvelle Vague Trockenbeerenauslese Collection #6 2015 (375ml) (325141) W a 95 $110 Welschriesling z wischen den Seen Trockenbeerenauslese Collection #11 2015 (375ml) (325131) W a 96 $148
