Beerenauslese edelsüss has a bordeaux-red label.
The intense botrytis leads to a higher dehydration of the berry and further dries them out causing a color change from violet to bordeaux red.
During the main harvest period the entire team picks the small, raisin-like berries out of the grapes.
Towards the end of harvest entire bunches have shriveled to a portion of their original size and we pick them off the stems.
These botrytis berries have already been dried by the sun, and some have shriveled to raisins.
The raisins are then collected in different boxes again and pressed later separately.
The raisins for the Beerenauslese are lightly dried up but still pneumatic and juicy.
The red-brown colored raisins produce a juicy sweet Riesling wine with an elegant acidity and a great balance.
