In the case of a new variety of vine varieties, the parents are indicated in the form "New variety = parent variety x father variety". Father variety is the second named grape variety, for example "Müller-Thurgau = Riesling (mother) x Madeleine Royale (father)". As a rule, the characteristics of the mother variety prevail. See also under crossing direction and crossing.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
