Riesling

 

a mid-season variety of wine grape.

The Riesling grape comes from the Rhine River Valley. It is cultivated in the Federal Republic of Germany, where it is used to make the famous Rhine and Moselle light table wines. In the USSR it is grown in the Krasnodar and Stavropol’ krais of the RSFSR and the Ukrainian SSR, Moldavian SSR, Kazakh SSR, Azerbaijan SSR, and Middle Asian republics. The cluster is small or of average size, cylindrical or cylindrical-conical in shape, and compact or loose. The berry is small or of medium size (11–15 mm in diameter), round, and greenish white, with scattered brown dots that are characteristic of the variety. Riesling grapes are used to make table wines, and in Middle Asia, fortified and dessert wines.

Italian Riesling (Colombard), an Italian wine variety, has been regionalized in the Ukrainian SSR and Moldavian SSR.
