Candied citrus and pineapple aromas juxtapose bramble and crushed mineral in this dry, medium-bodied white. Crisp quince and green plum flavors are tart and crunchy but balanced by riper tones of melon rind and grapefruit. The finish is invigorating and mineral. Drink now–2023. - Anna Lee C. Iljima 90 WE
Huge oak forests shield the vineyard slopes from the north and east. Together with heat-retaining Gipsum Keuper soil, the perfect micro-climate is created to produce wonderfully expressive wines laden with minerality and refreshing acidity. Wirsching, who are based in Franken, produce exceptional Silvaner, Riesling and Scheurebe wines - some of which are available in the region's traditional Boxbeutel bottles.
In the Wirsching estate Scheurebe is well known as a speciality. We were seen as the regional pioneer for this grape variety, for in 1952 Hand Wirsching was actually the first to plant this extraordinary varietal in Franconia. With our long-term experience we were become true experts in regards to this grape.
This Scheurebe wine is a delight due to its fresh and fruity bouquet. Exotic aromas such as grapefruit and mango in combination with a subtle, yet refreshing acidity make this wine nice to drink.
Fermentation is effected at a lower temperature in comparison to our classic wines bottled in the Bocksbeutel. In that way the carbon dioxide is preserved giving the wine its tangy character and pleasant freshness.
Herbal grapefruit aroma, lifted and zesty. Creamy, generous but with the zest of grapefruit. Terrific aperitif wine.
Aroma: Vital, fresh bouquet, hints of elder, grapefruit, citric.
Taste: Frity, dry, subtle acidity, fine exotic notes, light type
