The grape variety "Scheurebe" is a speciality at the Wirsching wine estate. They are known as the local pioneer of this variety, because in 1952 Hans Wirsching was the first to plant the Scheurebe in Franconia. Their long-time experience has turned them into real Scheurebe exports.
This Scheurbe Alte Reben fascinates with tis superb range of exotic flavours such as mango, passion fruit, grapefruit and lemon balm. Its full-flavoured aroma and harmonious taste are impressive.
In general, the appellation "Alte Reben" (Old Vines) defies the vine's age of at least 20 years. In their estate the grapes used for making such wines come from vines with an average age of 40 years. Old vines have thick and much deeper roots enabling them to take up more extracts and minerals from the soil then young plants. That gives the wine its powerful character.
