A delicious and somewhat obscure white wine grape from Germany, the Siegerrebe grape is delicious not only for its aromatic white wines but also for fresh eating if you don’t mind eating the grape seeds. Wines made from Siegerrebe are typically low in acids with an intense Muscat aroma and are therefore often blended with other varieties. Very early ripening and a great choice for growers looking to experiment with new varietals.
