Scheurebe is intriguing less known German grape but as interesting as Sylvaner and Riesling. Palate is being enticed with notes of grapefruit, mandarin and lime. Wine is juicy and fresh with good mineral finish.
This family business is into its fifth generation, after brothers Alexander and Martin took over from their father Norbert in 2011. The brothers set out on a radical, even controversial path to show German wines in a new and irreverent light. Their names and labels of course captured the imagination and people’s attention – their wines have featured pit-side at the German Grand Prix – but behind the anecdotes and jokes are brilliantly made wines from the rolling hills of the Pfalz and their vineyards in and around Landau- Nussdorf.
