Beerenauslese (literally “individual
berry selection”) is a wine made from
hand-selected individual grapes that
have been affected by botrytis cinerea
or ‘noble rot’, a fungus that
dehydrates the berries and adds a
unique honeyed flavor to the wines.
This rare condition in the vineyard
allows for the extraction of very concentrated
flavors and sugars in the
tiny amount of dehydrated juice of the
affected grapes. The resulting wine
is extremely rich, dense and viscous
with a unique profile. Often, Beerenauslese
is called ‘BA’ for short.
Römerhof beerenauslese is produced in very small quantity and only when the weather and vineyard have suitable conditions.
Aromas and fl avors of honey and caramelized fruit.
Enjoyed with aged cheeses and other complimentary desserts.
