Can anyone shed some light on the German VDP, Top Category, which includes the Erstes Gewaches, Grosses Gewaches, Erstes Lage, and "Luscious Sweet Wines"? I thought these classifications were for dry wines only. So, how would a Rheingau producer label an auslese or sweeter wine (falling into the "Luscious Sweet Wine" category) but produced to VDP standards?
P.S. How do I make an umlaut on this site? Maybe I'll make an omelet instead.
