According to the Austrian biologist Dr. Ferdinand Regner carried out in 1998 DNA analysis is the Riesling from a presumably natural cross between (Vitis vinifera sylvestris x Traminer ) x White Heisch ( Gouais Blanc ) emerged. Of the wild grape stem from the small berries and the frost hardiness, from the Traminer the spicy Notes and the Heunisch brought in late maturity, robustness and acid potential. It should be noted that although Gouais Blanc, the participation of wild grape and traminer is not guaranteed. The rare kind of game Red Riesling is not a precursor according to DNA analysis, but one mutation of the white Riesling and the variety Blue Riesling comes from the Traminer. The white Riesling may be on the ground morphological No similarities with the varieties Crouchen. Menu Pineau. Pedro Ximénez. Räuschling or Sauvignonasse be confused.
