Hybrid resulting from artificial self-fertilization between Riesling and Freiburg 589-54 (with itself), Johanniter was created in 1968 at the Freiberg Research Centre in Baden-Württemberg (D). It is named after the former director Johannes Zimmermann. Highly productive and multi-resistant, in Switzerland it produces fresh, citrusy wines, with a bitterness often hidden by a bit of residual sugar.
