Scheurebe is a hybrid of Sylvaner and Riesling, This grape has all the reasons be popular in Hong Kong & China; If you like fresh, fruity wine, you would in love with this beautiful variety & wine. It offers freshly crisp due to its lively acidity, very aromatic and very fruity, a touch of honey with odour of black currant, white peach and pink grapefruits. just a delicious sipping wine for an evening. These are long-lived wines that develop aromas redolent of peaches or roses as they mature, a bouquet of blackcurrant and a spicy undertone.
This wine works well with our Chinese dishes, sweet, sour as well as spicy Asian food. it is rich in flavour, excellent fruitiness & floral scent. For food matching ; I would suggest to go with char grilled sea bass, Sichuan Ma Po Tofu; Dan Dan noodles, Under Bridge Spicy Crab or any seafood, Tandoori chicken , potatoes wrapped in Parma ham, tomato confit, croutons with sea bass tartar, a dish with quail eggs. Just an perfect wine highly recommend by Horace.
Sometime, simply offer this delicious wine with group of friends in the afternoon. A happy beginning.
