Siegerrebe

The white grape variety is a new breeding between Madeleine Angevine x Roter Traminer(Gewürztraminer), which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012. Heinz Scheu (the breeder's son) later claimed in a book that the variety originated from an open-pollinated Madeleine Angevine. Synonyms are Alzey 7957, Scheu 7957 and Sieger. The cross was made in 1929 by Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the Landesanstalt für Rebenzüchtung in Alzey-Rheinland-Pfalz. Plant variety protection was granted in 1958. The variety was a crossing partner in the new varieties Augusta Luise, Hildegardistraube, Muscabona, Ortega, Rosetta, Sissi, Tamara and Thekla. This early-ripening vine has berries that are rich in sugar but low in acidity. It produces golden-yellow, alcohol-rich white wines with muscat tones. Due to its special aromatic characteristics, it is called a bouquet variety. There are vineyards in Germany (75 ha), Canada (22 ha) and Switzerland (0.1 ha). In 2016, 102 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
