Blue Arbst

The red variety comes from Germany, Synonyms are Arbst, Blue Affenthaler, Alsatian Roth, Kleinroth, Petit Noir, Pineau Franc and Black Traminer. According to DNA analysis is it identical to that Pinot Noir (Pinot Noir) and is no longer considered as a separate grape variety, although it is still listed separately in grape varieties of some wineries. Despite the synonym, she is with the species Affenthaler unrelated.

The vine is resistant to wintry frost, It is less productive than the Pinot Noir, has smaller grapes and produces musts with more sugar and extract. Blue Arbst used to be in the growing area to bathe widespread, but is already threatened with extinction today. The vine belongs to the group of Pinot varieties; look there.
