Erilon

The white grape variety (also L-3-9-25) is an interspecific new breeding between (Blaufränkisch x Cabernet Franc) x Merlan; the name was formed from the parent varieties. It contains genes from Vitis berlandieri, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in the Czech Republic by a team led by Vilém Kraus (1924-2013). Plant variety protection was granted in 2011. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is moderately resistant to frost, as well as very good against botrytis and both types of powdery mildew. It yields spicy white wines similar to Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of grass and nettles that tend to oxidise. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
