Early red Veltliner - grape and leaf

The attribute "early red" refers to an early ripeness of the bright red berries. The vine is sensitive to both mildews and Botrytis, such as frost and moisture. It produces a rather low-alcohol and low-acid white wine of golden yellow color with a subtle bitter almond flavor. She is also happy as table grape used. The variety is grown mainly in Austria.
