A German cross from 1882 between Riesling and Madeleine Royale (not Riesling and Silvaner as originally thought), the Müller Thurgau grape was not officially authorised until 1956 and it spread very quickly across the world. After its introduction it was planted so much in Germany that by the 1970's there were more Muller Thurgau vines than Riesling. That is no longer the case, but there is still a considerable amount of Muller Thurgau in Germany. It became very popular in England due to its early ripening and low acidity and until the mass plantings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it was the most widely planted variety here also.
