Scheurebe

Scheurebe is a crossing of Riesling and the "Bukett grape" that is well established in several German wine regions.

It was bred in Rheinhessen and named after its breeder, Georg Scheu, who found this new variety in 1916. While at first the Scheurebe spread across the country and covered 4.4% of all German winegrape areas, today it is rarely found (1.4% in 2017).

The wines made from Scheurebe are full-bodied, have pronounced acidity and a bouquet and taste reminiscent of black currants. Primarly, it is planted in Rheinland-Pfalz in Rheinhessen, the Pfalz and the Nahe.
