Red White Veltliner

The white grape variety comes from Austria. It belongs to the large Veltliner group. Synonyms grouped by country are Valtelin Rouge Blanc (France); Blasser Veltliner, Rothweißer Veltliner, Rotweißer, Silberweißer, Silberweißer Veltliner (sometimes considered as a separate variety), Todträger, Wachtler (Austria); Červeno Biely Muskatel, Muskatel Červenobily, Veltlínske Červenobiele (Slovenia); Rybola Tchervena, Veltlínské Červenobílé(Czech Republic). It is a colour mutation of Red Veltliner. The variety was used in the new Devín and Hetera breedings. The name is derived from the fact that the berries turn red on the side facing the sun, but often remain green in the shade. In the 1920s it was one of the main varieties in Lower Austria. It is still cultivated there in small quantities. In 2016, however, no stocks were recorded (statistics Kym Anderson).
