The 2019 Weinlaubenhof Kracher TBA #2 Ottonel Muscat from Burgenland, Austria, is an impressive white wine produced by Alois Kracher. This vintage, made from Muscat grapes, stands out for its complexity and elegance, receiving high praise from professional reviewers.

James Suckling of jamessuckling.com awarded this wine a score of 95, highlighting its "wonderful nose of mango brulee with some candied-orange and toasted-nut character." Suckling praises its "impressive concentration on the rich and succulent palate," noting the "great interplay of exotic fruit and salty minerality." He mentions that while the wine has moderate acidity, it is sufficient to maintain brightness throughout. Suckling concludes that this wine is suitable for drinking now or holding for further aging.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, with a review by SR, gave the wine an even higher score of 96. The review describes the wine as "golden-colored" and notes it was "vinified in stainless steel for 28 months." The bouquet is described as "clear and noble, remarkably delicate" with aromas of "ripe and stewed peaches, hints of smoke and milled white pepper," along with "candied cumquat and lemon zest." On the palate, the wine is described as "highly elegant and seamless in its texture," with intense yet delicate fruit settled on a "saline structure that leads to a highly refined and stimulating finish." SR emphasizes that this TBA is "super elegant and finessed" and ranks it as one of the finest Muscat Ottonels ever tasted.

The wine has an alcohol content of 10.0% and is sealed with a natural cork. The reviews collectively highlight the wine’s rich and exotic fruit profile, balanced acidity, and refined elegance, making it a notable choice for both immediate enjoyment and potential aging. These accolades underscore the craftsmanship of Alois Kracher and the exceptional quality of this 2019 vintage.
