Huxelrebe is an early-ripening crossing white grape variety grown mostly in the Rhein area of Germany. Capabale of producing very ripe, "Auslese" level must weights, it can often be found in lower priced, late harvest wines in its country of origin. These sweeter wines have flavours of Muscat grapes (orange creme, honey, dried apricot and orange marmalade) and exotic fruits such as passionfruit & mango. Also planted in the UK where, due to the cool climate, it's suitable for wines originally made in a similar style to the off-dry, popular, generic examples from the Rheinhessen. In England, often blended with other crossed (or hybrid) varieties, try Huxelrebe wines with smoked fish, pork dumplings, or curries where the residual sweetness contrasts the smokiness of the dish. Sweeter wines can also be paired with various blue cheeses and fruit-based desserts.
