To understand this big word, it helps to break it down: trocken/dried, beeren/berries, aus/out, lese/picking. Often confused with Trocken, these wines are made from dried, ultraripe berries that are picked out individually. This is the highest Pr├Ądikat designation, ranking above Eiswein and Beerenauslese. These concentrated, honey-like grapes are used to produce supersweet, downright unctuous dessert wines. Like Beerenauslese wines, these wines are rarely produced (two to three vintages every decade), but when they are they have enough acid and sugar to age for decades.
