Beerenauslese Weissburgunder 2013
The term (Prädikat) Beerenauslese refers to naturally sweet wines made from overripe berries who are infested by Botrytis (noble rot). We only produce these wines in very small quantities and only in years with suitable weather conditions. We pass through the vineyard several times and leave only the Botrytis-grapes on the vine. These grapes are harvested long after the main picking season has ended, They are then slowly pressed in a small press over several hours to extract the valuable juice. The concentrate we obtain is sweet, oily and dense and produces incredible wines that have an apparently endless life ahead of them.
