Traditionally German, this grapevine is also successfully grown in French Alsace, where the best Riesling wines are made. Just like Semillón, Riesling it is sensitive to being attacked by the "noble rot" condition.
It is a typically fruity grapevine. Aromas such as apple, oil or honey can be easily identified.

There are practically no Riesling grapevines grown in Argentina, though some wineries have managed good varietals thanks to grapes coming from pure vineyards.
Cluster: small and compact.
Grapes: medium-sized to small, spherical, yellow, with consistent skin, juicy pulp and delicate aromatic flavor.
