98 points "97 ST Deep golden yellow with a hint of brass. Spiced stone fruit aromas reminiscent of riesling, with hints of orange and mango. Explosive and freakishly complex; one could use a second mouth to follow the exceptional play of aromas and flavors presented here. Despite the wine's nearly 400 g/l (!) of residual sugar, this retains verve and balance. A truly spectacular wine, though still embryonic. Drink 2010 to 2040. 97 points By Peter Moser Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 06 --International Wine Cellar 98 WA The 2004 #10 Scheurebe Trockenbeerenauslese Zwischen den Seen is a lip-smacking elixir of Scheurebe, a kaleidoscopic and vivacious tribute to noble rot as only Alois Kracher could render. A sensational concentration of lime, pink grapefruit, pineapple, cassis, sage, and peppermint in the nose is joined on the slick, buttery-rich (yet always lively) palate by deep peach and peach kernel, persimmon, brown spices, and salt. It almost goes without saying that the sheer extract on exhibit here – along with 10.5 grams of acidity – is effortlessly holding back the wine’s 288 grams of residual sugar. Seldom will you taste a nobly sweet wine more luscious or invigorating than this outside of Germany, nor a wine with this combination of palpable richness and sheer extract yet lightness. I am sure one could still be enthused over these same virtues in a bottle opened a quarter century from now. by David Schildknecht, Issue #177, June 2008 --The Wine Advocate 95 WS Intense and structured, with delicious ripe Fuji apple flavors, flanked by plenty of honey and allspice. There's also plenty of mineral, with citrus notes that linger on the long, sumptuous finish. Drink now through 2030. –KM " Best -2030
