Queen Elizabeth

The white grape variety is a new variety between Duke of Buccleugh 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 cross was made by János Mathiász (1838-1921) in 1870, who was an ardent admirer of the Austrian Empress or Hungarian Queen Elizabeth (1837-1898). On the occasion of her 50th birthday in 1887, "Sisi" was served a wine made from it (interestingly, she did not like wine at all). The variety was a crossing partner of the new variety Pölöskei Muskotály. It is mainly used as table grape. As a wine grape, it produces golden-yellow white wines with a muscat tone. The variety is cultivated at the Leopold Auer winery in the Austrian Kamptal. No stock was reported in 2016 (Stastistik Kym Anderson).
