The white grape variety is a new breeding between Orangetraube x Welschriesling. Synonyms are Klosterneuburg 16-8 and Orangeriesling. The crossing was made by Dr. Friedrich Zweigelt (1888-1964) in 1922 at the Klosterneuburger Weinbauinstitut (Austria), as indicated by the second part of the name. The medium maturing vine is susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces full-bodied and extract-rich, rather neutral tasting white wines with moderate acidity, which are predominantly matured sweet. The variety is also used as table grape. It is grown in Austria in the wine-growing regions of Burgenland, Lower Austria, Styria and Wien cultivated. In 2017, the area under cultivation was 98 hectares with a strong downward trend (ÖWM-Statistics). In Hungary, 0.3 hectares were reported in 2016 in the Eger area (statistics Kym Anderson)
