Floriánka

The white grape variety (also VCR x MT) is a new variety between Early Red Veltliner x Müller-Thurgau. The breeder first called it Morava (Moravia), but this had to be changed due to this protected designation of origin. There is also a Serbian new breed called Morava. The new name was given after Saint Florian. The cross was made in the Czech Republic by the breeder Václav Křivánek (1927-2009). The plant variety protection was granted in 2010. The early maturing vine is resistant to frost, as well as moderately resistant to botrytis and both types of mildew. It produces aromatic, fresh white wines with aromas of apples, bananas and honey. The variety is cultivated in the Czech Republic (Moravia) in small quantities. However, no stocks were recorded in 2016 (statistics Kym Anderson).
