lockerbeerige Weintrauben

Term (also schütterbeerig) for the shape of grapes. An old term for this is Zottler (shaggy). The individual berries are loosely arranged so that there is a more or less large distance between them, in contrast to densely berried grapes. This can be advantageous because more sunlight reaches the individual berries and this has a positive effect on ripening, and there is also less danger of fungal diseases due to better draining and drying after rainfall. Certain grape varieties are naturally loose-grained. However, this may also be caused by berries that were not fertilised at flowering, resulting in trickling.
