Klopfer

Synonym for the grape variety Räuschling; look there.

The white grape probably comes from Germany (or Switzerland ). The name may derive from the robust foliage of the vine, which is particularly strong in the wind. According to another variant, this is a corruption of "Rußling" (soot), a term for "dark wood". To some extent confusing synonyms that misleadingly refer to other varieties are Brauner Nürnberger, Dretsch, Drutsch, Drutscht, Dünnelbling, Frankentraube, Großfränkisch, Gros Räuschling, Großer Räuschling, Großer Traminer, Grünspat, Klöpfer, Luttenberger, Luttenbergerstock, Melon Blanc, Offenburger, Pfäffling , Pfaffentraube, Ruchelin, Ruschling, Rüschling, Silberweiß, Vigne de Zuri, White Räuschling, Weißwelscher, Zürirebe, Zürichrebe and Züriwiss.
