Sämling – The perfect alternative to our aromatic varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Gelber Muskateller.
Sämling, or Scheurebe 88 in its full ampelographic denomination, was named after its breeder, Georg Scheu: it was his 88th attempt to breed Riesling and Silvaner. The full aroma has earned the variety its by-name “the younger brother of Sauvignon Blanc” – light and fruity in the glass. With their thin and sensitive skin, the grapes are a challenge in the vineyard.
Sämling is of historic significance in our winery: grandfather Alois Gross sen. celebrated Sämling as his favourite variety and planted grapevines that are at a good age today. This variety is an excellent complement to our wine range.
