Scheurebe wine - predicate: drinker-friendly

These comparisons may be close, but Scheurebe is something of its own. An answer to the taste of the people. Scheurebe is geared to the connoisseur, not the other way around. It brings freshness to tangy summer wines, sweetness to the finest Trockenbeerenauslesen, powerful body to dry white wines. It offers immense potential, which is particularly tickled out of the grapes by the young guard of the winegrowers' guild. Scheurebe is trendy, the way leads forward and the lovers appreciate it. The variety has never been greater, never better, never more multifaceted - just like the character of the Scheurebe.
The fruity character of the Scheurebe, unfolds at full maturity to a mosaic of currant, grapefruit and slightly bitter citrus fruits. In the glass, the white wine shines in a spectrum of colours, from pale to golden yellow tones. The powerful and refreshing acidity combines with a subtle sweetness to create an all-around delicate body in which one can detect traces of cassis, pear and peach. Even as a noble sweet wine, Scheurebe does not lose its fresh and thoroughly drinkable character, of which one is happy to serve a glass more.
Origin Mr. Scheu
The year is 1916, Georg Scheu is sitting in the vine nursery he founded in Alzey, Rheinhessen. Little by little he plants seedlings and tries, experiments and analyses. With seedling 88 then success. He notes a new breed between Riesling and Silvaner. In reality, however, it is a mixture between Riesling and Bukettraube, the latter itself a cross between Silvaner and Riesling. However, this was only found out much later by DNA examinations, so Georg Scheu doesn't care. He celebrates his breeding, calls it simply Sämling 88. Time would show - it is the most successful new breeding of the 20th century. In Germany and Austria, the grape variety, also called Alzey S.88 or simply Scheurebe by some, is widely cultivated and vinified. The grape variety celebrated great success in the 50s, when first-class Trockenbeerenauslesen and Eisweine succeeded and enjoyed great recognition.
That was already some years ago. The area under cultivation has been greatly reduced, to now 1700 hectares in Germany and a vanishingly small 350 hectares in the Alpine Republic. But nothing is lost yet, as some wineries in Rheinhessen, Baden, Saxony and Franconia prove. On the contrary, the Scheureben wine varieties have been on the upswing again. Today, you can find consistently attractive Prädikat wines, from the 88th seedling of Mr. Scheu.
