German word meaning ‘berry selection’ used when regulating German and Austrian dessert wines. This term when found on a label means that the wine was made from individually selected fully ripened grapes often infected by ‘noble rot’ or Botrytis Cinerea and picked berry by berry. High residual sugar is left as a by-product in the wine.
