Arguably this is the classic wine grape of Germany, producing wines of similar quality to some of the noble grapes of France (where it is also grown).

The fruits are late in ripening, making this variety suitable only for growing under protection; this is especially important if you want to allow 'noble rot' (evaporation of some of the moisture of the grapes caused by the fungal infection Botrytis cinerea) to take hold of the golden-yellow fruits and thus have a go at making your own dessert wines.

Being high in sugar, this is also an attractive and sweet eating variety.

  • Originally from Germany.
  • Late-season fruit ripening (probably too late for most of the UK outside).
  • Winter wood ripening is good - so can be grown both outdoors or under protection (greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory) - though to ensure fruit ripening we recommend protected growing.
  • Can be trained using either the cane replacement method or spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
  • Fruit contains seeds.
