Scheurebe (pronounced "shoy ray beh") is another new crossing that is well established in a number of regions. Bred in 1916 in Rheinhessen and named after its breeder, Georg Scheu, it is a crossing of Silvaner and Riesling. It ripens in early October, but the late-harvested wines of this grape are those that are treasured most. The wines have full body, pronounced acidity and a bouquet and taste reminiscent of black currants. Scheurebe is most widely planted in the Pfalz, Rheinhessen and Nahe regions.

Winery Notes:
Sage and pepper, boss. Like a Riesling that wasn’t de-clawed, as precise as acupuncture, but surrounded by this ’09 sturdiness and gingery juice; a wicked-good Scheu that’ll be even more feral in bottle.
