Neuburger is a light-skinned white wine grape variety native to Wachau region of Austria and it is a natural crossing between Roter Veltliner x Sylvaner. Typical characteristics of the grape are mild floral aromas mixed with subtle fruit flavours of apple, lemon and pear as well as a touch of spice. Crisp, fresh and uncomplicated. It is usually blended with Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Grüner Veltliner for white Leithaberg DAC wines in the eastern part of Austria in Burgenland region. The planting of this grape is gradually declining, mainly because the popularity of the Grüner Veltliner which overshadows the Neuburger, and can be weakened easily by disease and the vines could die. The variety also is highly receptive to late frosts and winter frosts and it is very susceptible to Botrytis with its compact grape bunches which are not an advantage. It creates magnificent sweet wines because of that. The grape is grown only in Austria.
