If you drink German wine, you may have come across the terms Auslese, Spätlese, Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese. They all contain the word die Lese which in this context is not the first person singular form of the verb lesen – “to read” – but rather a noun with the meaning “vintage” or “harvest.” Dict.cc has a whole category of wine-related terms which you can check out here: https://www.dict.cc/?s=subject:oenol.
I suppose we can split the family of words in two groups
– Auslese… meaning the type of wine, probably what you mean with “vintage” ?
– Lese, the Harvest
The first family refering to the special type of grape genetics
The second to the Harvest type (Spät, etc..)
Of course, German language and good wine is incompatible 😉
