The hose running from the valve stem goes to the windshield washer fluid. If the driver wants to clean the windshield, it is the tire pressure from the spare that is needed to squirt the cleaner fluid on the windshield. A little more research at http://www.vw-resource.com/washer.html revealed this, answering the next logical question about the depletion of pressure in the spare:

"Back to the operation of the system - there is a one way/pressure limiter valve built into the fitting on the top of the washer reservoir -- this will allow the spare to only drop to about 26 psi and no further. The spare is always pumped to about 42 psi to allow for this."
