Sämling 88
Definition:a new variety created by the German botanist Georg Scheu in 1916

Georg Scheu probably crossed Riesling with a wild vine. As a quality wine, the Sämling 88 is predominant in the Steiermark, where it is pleasantly fruity. The variety is in its best form as a noble sweet wine, and Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese fascinate with a wide spectrum of tropical notes, pronounced aromatics and perfect spice.
