Designation (also parent-child relationship) for a relationship between grape varieties that cannot be clearly determined in the context of DNA analyses. One variety is a direct descendant of the other, but it can also be the other way round. See also under crossbreeding; and a list of keywords relevant to grape varieties under grapevine.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
