The spelling is beerenauslese (which is important if you use wine searcher). Beerenauslese (or BA) is the penultimate level of sweetness in German wine classifications. The only one that is sweeter is Trockenbeerenauslese (or TBA). The grape in the wine you had is Huxelrebe, which I had never heard of before. The maker of the wine, Darting, is a very good producer and part of the Terry Theise portfolio. Any time you see a German wine with his name on it, you can assume it's a quality wine.

If you try Wine Searcher there's not much, as you say (and no exact match).

There some Darting beerenauslese from other grapes (many of which are riesling, which is considered the highest quality grape in Germany)

There are also some Beerenauslese Hexelrebes from other producers, most of which I'm not familiar with (except Gysler, which is Austrian and I believe is also part of the Theise portfolio)

Your best bet is probably to go to a good wine store and see if they can order it for you - or they might be able to recommend a good alternative. However, as you can see from Wine-Searcher, good beerenauslese does get real expensive real fast.
