The perfect pairing for fruit-based desserts, this sweet wine is a blend of the classic Wachau varieties: Riesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Muller-Thurgau, Gelber Muskateller (Muscat Blanc Petit Grains). Delicate notes of honey and sweet spices make this an elegant but flavoursome wine.

The grapes for Beerenauslese Terrassen come from terraced vineyards throughout the Wachau. The wine reflects the elegant and precise style and character of Wachau sweet wines.

Beerenauslese Terrassen is a blend of mainly Riesling as well as Pinot Blanc, Rivaner and Gelber Muskateller. The Riesling contributes the delicate elegance, nobility and the fruity character, Rivaner adds freshness and finesse, Pinot Blanc brings additional complexity and structure whereas Gelber Muskateller provides a distinctive aroma.

Beerenauslese must be harvested at least at 25° KMW (125° Oechsle). Beerenauslese is a rare and intense sweet wine with concentrated natural sweetness. The annual production volume is very low.

Prime sites have been specifically cultivated for sweet wines. Botrytised Riesling grapes have a high concentration of sugar that creates the viscosity of wines. Additionally, top quality sweet wines also require a small portion of healthy, non-botrytised grapes to retain fine fruit character and precision. The grapes were carefully hand-picked between midOctober and mid-November with an average yield with only 1.500 kg per hectare. Temperature-controlled fermentation and vinification in stainless steel tanks guarantee particular elegance and structure.

These wines are straw yellow with golden reflections. Open and pronounced, the nose complex bouquet of intense fruit flavours, forest honey, exotic fruits, physalis, mango, passion fruit, subtle hints of citrus, wild herbs. The palate is sweet and harmonious with refreshing acidity. This is a very expressive sweet wine with a long finish.
