AURORE: Seibel 5279 cross from around 1860.  It produces a white wine of modest, neutral varietal character and is often used as a blending component.  It is a popular blend for Delaware, and most other  varieties.  

This grape ripens early and is picked early for blending properties when the acid is high and flavors are moderate.  If allowed to ripen, the TA is moderate with a decent brix.  It is very susceptible to oxidation and needs careful handling.  Aurore is not usually commercially produced as a varietal.
