Repeat: Geil Scheurebe Kabinett ‘Bechtheimer Heilig Kreuz’ 2007

April 3, 2009

I couldn’t help myself but get back into another bottle of this fantastic Scheurebe with Chinese food. This wine is flat out delicious, just ripping with tropical fruits, lime, guava, apricot and orange zest. Showing some pine/evergreen in the mix too.  Ripeness right in balance to marry up with spicy foods with a clean acidity to freshen up the palate. This is a confident wine, no apologies and very accessible – just big fruits with enough funkiness  to satisfy the geeks.

If you see this wine for sale ~$15, you’d be a fool not to give it a try where you might typically go for a Riesling, Gewurztraminer, or Viognier.

Scheurebe in the house.
