Siegerrebe

Siegerrebe Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Siegerrebe is a newer grape variety bred in Germany by crossing Madeleine Angevine with Gewurztraminer. This wine has wonderful flavors of grapefruit, lychee nuts, flowers and spices that come from this extra early ripening grape. We finish this white wine medium dry (about 0.75% residual sugar) which makes this wine great with appetizers, Asian foods or light curries. Organically grown on Lopez Island

Varietal Definition
Siegerrebe:
Grape derived from cross between Gewurztraminer and an unspecified table grape. Grown in limited amounts in Germany and used as small percentage amounts in blends.
Traminer:
Parent grape of the popular Gewurztraminer clone. Still grown in France and in California but almost everywhere has been replaced by its much more intense and spicy offspring clone.
Madeleine Angevine:
Also known as Madeline Angevine or MADELEINE ANGEVINE. Cool region table grape cross used for Riesling-type white table wine production in the United Kingdom and Germany. It is a cross between Madeleine Royale and Pr├ęcoce de Malingre. Not only is it a widely grown variety in its own right but has claim to fame as one of the parents of the Siegerrebe and Comtessa varieties. It grows well in cool climates and is known for producing light white wines with citrus and herb flavors.
