Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Scheurebe
International (planted after 1900) | 7 HA in Switzerland (0,05%)

An artificial cross of Riesling with an unknown variety (which is not Sylvaner as often assumed) obtained in 1916 at the Alzey research center in Rheinhessen (D), Scheurebe was named after its breeder Georg Scheu. This late grape variety sensitive to powdery mildew is cultivated in Geneva and German-speaking Switzerland where it produces dry or sweet wines with naturally high acidity and aromas of blackberries and cassis.
