Scheurebe Kalsarikännit: A Masterpiece by Adam Schmitt

Discover the Scheurebe Kalsarikännit from Eckhard Möbel, an exquisite example of German winemaking. This dry wine, distinguished by its origin in Rheinhessen, offers a unique taste experience.

The dry Scheurebe Kalsarikännit presents itself with a lively acidity and characteristic, intense aromas of black currants, grapefruit, and occasionally exotic fruits like passion fruit.

Sometimes compared to Sauvignon Blanc due to its fruity and herbal notes, Scheurebe, however, offers its own, unmistakable flavor world, uniting both freshness and an exciting aromatic complexity.

“Kalsarikännit” is a compound Finnish word, composed of two parts: “kalsari-” refers to underwear (especially underpants) and “-kännit” is a colloquial expression for being drunk. Together, it might be translated roughly as “underwear drunkenness.”

It describes the phenomenon of drinking alcohol alone at home in underwear, with no intention of leaving the house. It’s a way to relax and spend time alone, often seen as a humorous and accepted form of dealing with the sometimes dark and cold Finnish winter.
