Definitions for "Beerenauslese"
After Kabinett, Spätlese, and Auslese, Beerenauslese is the fourth designation of sweetness level in the German Prädikat system. Translated as 'berry selected harvest,' BA (abbreviated) is generally an expensive wine due to the fact that it is made from individual grapes which are picked by hand. BA are also often affected by botrytis cinerea (noble rot), which provide a unique, sought-after richness.
