A new variety created by the German botanist Georg Scheu in 1916. Georg Scheu crossed Riesling with Bukettraube. As a Qualitätswein, the Sämling 88 is predominant in the Steiermark, where it is pleasantly fruity. The variety is in its best form as a nobly sweet wine, and Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese fascinate with a wide spectrum of tropical notes, pronounced aromatics and perfect spice.
