Vintages Wine Panel: Scheurebe is a wonderful grape variety to explore. A crossing of Riesling and Silvaner, this variety was developed by (and is named after) famed viticulturalist Dr. Georg Scheu. The grape thrives in sandy soils, so Pfeffingen’s sand and limestone-rich Ungsteiner Herrenberg vineyard is an ideal home. This wine expresses rich grapefruit, lime and mineral character. Its moderate sweetness is balanced by racy acidity, leading to a lip-smacking finish. My note: Totally yummy! Okay it’s got sweetness, but you need to get past that, please. Sweet doesn’t mean simple: this is fleshy, ripely sweet. Totally different ballgame. Apricots, peaches and a parade of other tantalizing tree fruit. Come on, just try it for Pete’s sake. Not a dessert wine but eat with spicy and hot foods or those with sweetness like glazed ham and so on.

Russell McDowell rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Highly recommended by the LCBO Consultant. Last bottle they had, didn't expect to find any more in the city.

LCBO Card: Cooling mint and sage, honeydew melon and pineapple soothe both in the nose and on a silken-textured palate, where 53 grams of residual sugar are beautifully incorporated without depriving the finish of vivacity and juicy refreshment. Score 91
