Regional Features & Food Pairings

Würzer is mainly grown in Germany. It is also found in small quantities in England, and also New Zealand in tiny amounts, though in England, due to the cool climate it ripens too late so it is more and more replaced by early ripening varieties such as Bacchus. Würzer is a early to mid ripening variety with a good resistance to downy mildew and being sensitive to winter frosts. Wines are showing a balanced low acidity with moderate sugar levels exept in very cool climate. In winemaking, the grapes are usually fermented in stainless steel tanks, preserving their aromas and flavours.
