Dr. Loosen Beerenauslese 16 187ml
Beerenauslese (pronounced BEAR-en OWS-lay-zuh) means “berry selection” in German. It is an intense, ultra-concentrated dessert wine made from hand-selected grapes that have been shriveled about halfway to raisins by botrytis (the “Noble Rot”). BA has the same minimum must weight as Eiswein, so they have about the same sweetness. But BA has the distinct honeyed character that comes from botrytis, giving the wines a more complex aroma and a lusher texture.
