More about Merzling

Description

Grape Type:

Merzling is a white-wine hybrid grape variety with a parentage of Seyval Blanc (or Seyve Villard 5-276) and a Riesling and Pinot Gris crossing. It was bred in Freiburg, Germany in 1960 by Dr. Johannes Zimmerman, and registered as a protected varietal in 1993. Its high tolerance of cold weather, resistance to most disease (excluding oidium), and tendency towards ultra-high yields means it is often used as a valuable blending component in cooler vineyard sites in various northern European regions. Ripening period lies between the end of September and early October
