When broken down, Beerenauslese translates to beeren/berries, aus/out, lese/picking—or, simply stated, berries that are picked out individually. This Prå̈dikat ranks above Kabinett, Spätlese, and Auslese, but below Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese. Beerenauslese wines are made from carefully selected overripe grapes to create the rich dessert wines for which Germany is famous. Usually made in two to three vintages every decade, these wines are balanced, with enough acid and sugar to age for decades.
