How do you like your scheurebe? What? Never heard of it? Welcome to the club. When I received this bottle all I knew about it was it was sweet and light (it came as in a shipment from Vinesse Sweet and Light wine club).
It seems over the years Germany has crossed quite a bit of grapes. Scheurebe (pronounced shoy-ray-beh) is a cross between riesling and silvaner. I had the pleasure of having my first glass of scheurebe to be 2010 Louis Guntrum. According to the information I received from Vinesse:
"Louis Guntrum crafts its Scheurbe in a sweet (but not too sweet) style that's also mildly spritzy. The 2010 vintage is an exceptional wine-perfectly balanced and fruitful, with just a hint of Germany's famous minerality."
If you prefer your wines slightly sweet, not sugary, light and with a pop, you will adore this wine. I think it's perfect for a mixed crowd of wine drinkers. Not too sweet, not too dry, simple easy and fun to drink. Check it out!!
