A hybrid born from the Vinifera vines of Sylvaner and Riesling. Extremely frost resistant, the Ehrenfelser was created to provide Riesling quality in colder climates. Success was close, but the Ehrenfelser suffers from very low natural acidity, thus it is best consumed young and has not potential for long-term aging. Found in the German regions of Pfalz and Rheinhessen, though it is most prominent in Canada. Ehrenfelsers have aromas and flavors reminiscent of apples, pears and white flowers.
