The Scheurebe grape variety was
developed in Germany as a cross of the Riesling
varieties in 1956. It makes wines that are crisp due to
its lively acidity, very aromatic and are very fruity. Wines
made from Scheurebe are often described as having a hint of blackberries
in flavor. It is grown almost exclusively in Germany
and represents less than 5% of the vines in that country.
