Queen Elizabeth

The white grape variety is a new variety between Duc de Buccleugh(Muscat d'Alexandrie - open flowering) x Ezeréves Magyarország Emléke(Millennium grape). Synonyms are Erzsébet Királyné Emléke, Erzsébet Szoeloe, Mathiász 165, Memory of Queen Elizabeth, Regina Elisabetta and Souvenir de la Reine Elisabeth. The crossing was made by János Mathiász (1838-1921) in 1870, who was an ardent admirer of the Austrian Empress or Hungarian Queen Elisabeth (1837-1898). On the occasion of her 50th birthday in 1887, "Sisi" was served a wine made of it (piquantly, she did not like wine at all). The variety was a cross-breeding partner of the new Pölöskei Muskotaly variety. It is mainly used as a table grape. As a wine grape it produces golden yellow white wines with muscatel. The variety is cultivated in the Leopold Auer winery in the Austrian Kamptal and produces a grape brandy. In 2016, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson).
