Vitis vinifera 'Ortega'
(Muller-Thurgau x Siegerrebe) Grown mainly on Vancouver Island for many years, this very productive variety makes a light, pleasant, fruity, white wine with high sugar levels and low acidity. Thicker skins protect against yellow jacket damage and bunch rot. Will develop its lichi and citrus characteristics predictably in regions with 1500-1600 GDD. Grows in USDA Zone 7-10. Ripens in Sept.
