Trockenbeerenauslese is the highest category of nectar-sweet, and expensive, dessert wine produced in Germany. The word means "dry berry selection," which indicates that the Botrytis-raisined berries are individually picked to insure that only fully dried grapes are used for the wine. Most trockenbeerenauslese wine are made from Riesling though varieties from Welschriesling, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer are common as well. All varieties are divine with blue cheese or fruit-based desserts. (Wine/Classification & Attributes)
