Torrontés Riojano

The white grape variety originates from South America(Argentina) and belongs to the group of the so-called Criollas (see there the history in detail). Synonyms are Malvasia, Torrontél, Torrontél Riojano and Torrontés. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the varieties Moscatel Amarillo, Muscat Blanc, Torrontés Mendocino or Torrontés Sanjuanino (same parents). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it is a presumably natural cross between Criolla Chica (Listán Prieto) x Muscat d'Alexandrie.
