Germany has strict rules governing the production and labeling of its quality wines. There are only 2 types of quality wines: to be classified as “QbA” quality, a wine must be produced from one of the 13 designated regions and has a natural alcohol content of at least 7%. The higher “Pradikatswein” quality suggests a quality wine with special attributes, with each wine depending on how the grapes are treated at the winery. Auslese is made from individually selected exra-ripe bunches of grapes.
Aromatic with ripened fruit (peach and honey melon) and floral characters. Tropical fruit (Lychee) on the palate, fuller body than Spatlese.
6-8℃, decanting not required. Best matched with sweet, sweet and sour, or spicy food.
