2020 “Unser Täglich Scheurebe” Halbtrocken ++
Give us this day our daily Scheurebe!
Cards on the table: I am ga-ga over this wine. It curls my toes. It is an apex of dee-lish-ness in perfect balance, Scheu in the pink grapefruit idiom with ridiculous vitality.
It is more than even these things, but you’re going to think I’m in the grips of my giddiness, or else just silly. I’ll risk it.
This is a wine of cheer. It will lift you if you’re bummed out.
This is a wine of healing, of convalescence; it is the return of health, in liquid form.
This is a wine of giggling, of all the times you laugh despite yourself.
This is a wine of bliss unmitigated by “mind.” Your baby laughing at some stupid thing you do. The moments when (to quote James Wright) you are “abandoned to entire delight.”
