Austria, LFZ Klosterneuburg
: New breed from Welschriesling x Orangetraube
98 h, 0.2%
Parentage: Created by Dr. Fritz Zweigelt in 1922 at the Teaching and Research Centre for Viticulture and Horticulture (LFZ) in Klosterneuburg
Vineyard area: The variety has little significance in terms of area, and is cultivated only in Austria.
Important ampelographic features:
Leaf: medium-sized, round, five lobes
Grape cluster: small with compact berries, cylindrical, often with wings; grapes are small with a greenish-yellow colour, are spotted, juicy and have a neutral taste.
Significance, conditions: The variety makes few demands on the soil and so far has – despite its somewhat early ripeness (the intent of using the early-ripening Orangetraube variety for crossing) – no significance in comparison with Welschriesling.
