"Shoy-ray-beh" from the Pfalz

Something sweeter now.

Weingut Pfeffingen, Scheurebe Spätlese 2009, Pfalz
No apologies for my focus on a few Pfeffingen's wines of late. After buying directly at the winery, it's just the way the cookie crumbles at the moment in terms of wines we've been drinking.

Going merely on memory: an exotic, highly expressive nose of blackcurrant and lychee fruit. Sweetish entry on the palate, but in balance with the acidity which gives the wine backbone. Textured and well structured, this went well with our dessert of apple crumble. Considerable length. Scheurebe rocks.
