Definition:white wine variety

An old variety, that probably originates from a wild vine that has mutated and developed. Regarded as the "King of White Wines", the variety produces wines of outstanding quality in the wine-growing regions around the Danube, with fruity stone fruit aroma, vibrant acidity and mineral spice. Well-aged Riesling wines display tertiary aromas (of petrol) and are capable of keeping at their best for many decades.
