Ungsteiner Herrenberg  Scheurebe Auslese

The grape variety:

As a cross between Riesling and bouquet grapes, the Scheurebe grape variety was developed in 1916 by Dr. Georg Scheu bred in Alzey. Its particular advantages in dessert winemaking (attractive bouquet, late ripening, good acidity structure) led to the grape variety spreading rapidly both nationally and internationally. The Pfeffingen winery has been enthusiastically dedicated to the Scheurebe for more than 50 years. Alongside Riesling, it is the winery's most important grape variety.


The floor:

The Scheurebe vineyard in the Pfeffingen family is located in an absolute top location, the Ungsteiner Herrenberg. The grape variety was deliberately planted there, as we know about the high demands on location and soil. Only really very good locations, with a southern exposure and a strong, well-supplied soil ensure the optimal ripeness of the grapes.


The wine:

For this great wine it was necessary to select individual, selected noble rotten berries. An extremely labour-intensive and sensitive manual work that can only be carried out by harvest workers with many years of experience. As a thank you, fine lychee and currant aromas beguile the senses. The intense fruit charmingly caresses the palate and lasts almost endlessly. Paired with the animating acidity, this selection can be drunk now or stored for a long time.
