Scheurebe

The Scheurebe grape is another relative new comer.  It was bred in 1916 by Georg Scheu by crossing the Riesling and Silvaner grapes. Today in Germany, it is a significant grape for the Rheinhessen region. It is also found in the Pfalz, Franken, and Ahr regions. About 4,400 acres (1,781 hectares) or 1.7% of the German wine regions.

Scheurebe wines are almost exclusively produced into Prädikatsweine with various ripeness levels. The Kabinett and Spätlese wines have a taste and bouquet that show hints of black currants and sometimes mangos, mandarine oranges, lemons, peaches, and pears. Light Kabinett wines are great on their own. Dry to medium dry Spätlese wines go well with hearty meat dishes, spicy ragouts of fish and poultry as well as asian dishes. Sweet Spätlese and Auslese wines go well with fruit desserts and blue-vein cheeses.
