Scheurebe Beerenauslese

The grape variety:

As a cross between Silvaner and Riesling, 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 committed to the Scheurebe for more than 50 years. Alongside Riesling, it is the 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 dessert wine it was necessary to select selected noble rotten berries. An extremely labour-intensive and sensitive work that can only be carried out by harvest workers with many years of experience.

Now fine lychee and currant aromas beguile the senses. The intense fruit charmingly caresses the palate and lasts almost endlessly.
