I mean, obviously an erudite drinker like myself knows how to say Riesling and Trockenbeerenauslese, but I was a bit thrown for a day or two by one of Italy's lesser known (though that's changing rapidly) vinos.
Trockenbeerenauslese Hopler 2015 37.5cl PS22 Great Western Wines) TBAs, wines made from grapes that have shrivelled on the vines are notoriously expensive due to the lower yields and risks associated with production.
Merry Edwards, legendary Sonoma winemaker who crafts a beautiful sweet Sauvignon Blanc, explains her inspiration: "I have always been enamored with the great late-harvest wines of the world--the best Sauternes and Trockenbeerenauslese." The former is the famed sweet white of Bordeaux, the latter ("TBA" for short) the sweetest of the German whites, both made from grapes that have been infected with the ominous-sounding fungus Botrytis cinerea, or "noble rot." In the process of drying and shriveling the grapes, botrytis leaves behind rich honeyed flavors and a haunting minerality--qualities key to the reputations of both wines.
Moving to Germany there are literally hundreds to go for, from a humble sweet riesling to the most noble of wines, Trockenbeerenauslese. But for great value the SAINSBURY'S HOUSE SWEET WINE BEERENAUSLESE PRADIKATSWEIN RHEINHESSEN (PS3.99 a half bottle, Sainsbury's) will do the job nicely...
German winemakers offer perhaps the most comprehensive selection of this style, beginning with lightly perfumed Auslese quality wines, progressing to the more intensely honeyed Spatlese and Trockenbeerenauslese grades, and peaking with supremely succulent Eiswein.
Then the level of sweetness comes into play, starting with trocken (dry) or halb-trocken (off-dry) and then from kabinett (medium dry), spatlese (late-harvested grapes, usually medium sweet), auslese (medium to sweet, where some of the grapes may have been concentrated by the effect of "noble rot" or botyrtis), beerenauslese (sweet, with more botrytis) and trockenbeerenauslese (intense and sweet, made from only botrytisaffected grapes).
In Austria, as in Germany, local laws define the increasing sweetness of a wine by an ascending scale in which each rung of the ladder has its own special terms: Sptlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese and then Trockenbeerenauslese. Only the last two are significantly botrytised.
Riesling can be made in a number of styles from a dry, tart wine that is low in alcohol to the famous German dessert wine Trockenbeerenauslese, or TBA, that is very concentrated with flavor and sugar.
They are labelled in order of sweetness from kabinett, sptlese, auslese, beerenauslese, eiswein to trockenbeerenauslese.
An even more prized 1976 Trockenbeerenauslese had its label missing, and only a handwritten neck tag to identify it.
