Welschriesling

In South Tyrol, Welschriesling is grown only on the Wine Road.

Welschriesling is an ancient variety of white wine grape, unrelated to the Riesling, that is grown throughout Central Europe. Although the origins of Welschriesling are uncertain, it was most probably first cultivated in Romania, Italy or France. It produces a fresh and fruity wine that should be drunk relatively early and is not storable for long periods of time. In South Tyrol, Welschriesling is cultivated only on a small scale.

Welschriesling requires deep and warm residual soil, rich in slate. It is greenish/pale yellow in colour and has a delicate aroma of red currants, gooseberries, green apples and sour drops. It is best accompanied with light starters and fish and can also be served as an aperitif.

Serving temperature: 8 - 10°C
