Pálava

The white grape variety is a new breed between Savagnin Blanc (Traminer) x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2013. It was named after the protected landscape area in southern Moravia. Synonyms are Nema and Veverka. The cross was made in 1953 in the Czech Republic by the breeder Josef Veverka. Plant variety protection was granted in 1977. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the two new varieties Medea and Mília. The vine is moderately frost-hardy, but susceptible to fungal diseases. It produces fragrant white wines similar to Traminer. In 2010, there were larger areas under cultivation in the Czech Republic, especially in the Mikulovská wine-growing region (198 ha) and in Slovakia (32 ha). However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
