Cserszegi Füszeres

The white grape variety (also Cserszegi Füszeries) is a new variety between Irsai Olivér x Red Traminer (Gewürztraminer). The name means "Spicy from Cserszeg" (wine-growing community at Lake Balaton/Plattensee). The crossbreeding was done in Hungary in 1960 by the breeder Karoly Bakonyi. The plant variety protection was granted in 1982. The variety was a crossing partner of the new breeding Nektar (1). The medium-ripening, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and botrytis and produces fragrant, fine-acidic white wines with a subtle muscatel tone. It is mainly grown in the Hajós-Baja and Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja wine-growing regions. In 2016, the total area under vines in Hungary was 4,299 hectares (Kym Anderson statistics). This puts it in 128th place in the worldwide grape variety ranking (Kym Anderson).
