SCHEUREBE – A SPICY DELIGHT.
The Rheinhessen vine breeder Georg Scheu (pronounced “shoy”) lent his name to this successful white crossing of Silvaner and Riesling dating from 1916. Today, Scheurebe is grown primarily in Rheinhessen and the Pfalz, and to some extent in the Nahe and Franken regions.Characteristics
Ripeness is essential to bring forth its characteristic bouquet reminiscent of black currants or grapefruit and its fine, spicy undertones. It is prized as a versatile wine, produced in several styles and various ripeness levels that offer a harmonious interplay of refreshing acidity and natural fruit flavor. Food Recommendations
A dry Scheurebe wine is a delicious sipping wine for an evening get-together, while those with some sweetness are remarkable for their ability to enhance and refine the exotic spices and aromas of Asian cuisine. The rich, sweet dessert wine versions are superb with fruit-based desserts and blue-veined cheese. These are long-lived wines that develop aromas redolent of peaches or roses as they mature.
