German for "selection," this Pr├Ądikat designation ranks above Kabinett and Sp├Ątlese but below Beerenauslese, Eiswein, and Trockenbeerenauslese. Auslese-level wines are based on minimum must weights and are made from handpicked grapes that are fully ripened and pressed independently from other grapes. Fine Auslese wines are sweet, sometimes due to Botrytis cinerea, and can develop complexity with age.
