Madeleine x Angevine 7672

The white grape variety is an open flowered seedling of Madeleine Angevine; the father variety is unknown. Self-pollination can be excluded, because Madeleine Angevine is an all-female grape variety. The variety was probably discovered and selected around 1930 in the Landesanstalt für Rebenzüchtung in Alzey(Rheinhessen-Germany). The early maturing vine produces rather low-acid white wines with a citrus aroma and subtle muscatel. It was introduced to England at the end of the 1950s, where it was initially confused with the parent variety Madeleine Angevine. This popular variety occupied around 50 hectares of vineyards in 2009. There are also other tiny stocks in Denmark and Sweden
