Scheurebe is a white wine grape variety that originated in Germany in the 20th century. It is known for its high yields and aromatic qualities, and is commonly grown in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, and the United States. The grape's organoleptic properties typically include blackcurrant, herbal and grapefruit flavors or lemon and honeysuckle aromas. Scheurebe was created by Dr. Georg Scheu, who aimed to create a Riesling and Silvaner cross suitable for growing in Rheinhessen. However, it has since been confirmed that the grape's parents are Riesling and Bukettraube. In the vineyard, Scheurebe is high yielding and best when picked at full maturity. It has good aging potential and can make very luscious sweet wines, such as eiswein.
