From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Albalonga is a white German wine grape variety that is a crossing between Rieslaner and Silvaner. It is grown primarily in the Rheinhessen where, in favorable vintages, it can produce wines up to auslese-level sweetness. However, the variety is prone to various grape rots which can make viticulture difficult for the variety. [1]
