Vinification of the Bickel-Stumpf Scheurebe Thüngersheimer Johannisberg
This elegant white wine from Germany is made from the grape variety Scheurebe. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Franconia. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of limestone and sandstone. The Scheurebe Thüngersheimer Johannisberg is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this German wine breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines.
The ripeness of the grapes for this wine from Scheurebe is influenced to a considerable extent by the climate of the growing region. In Franconia, the grapes thrive in a rather cool climate, which is reflected, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and a rather moderate must weight. After the grape harvest, the grapes reach the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Scheurebe Thüngersheimer Johannisberg is allowed to further harmonize on the fine lees for several months.
