The red grape variety probably comes from Germany. Synonyms are Blauer Affenthaler, Kleiner Trollinger, Morillon Aigret, Pineau Aigret, Säuerlicher Burgunder and Schwarzblauer Affenthaler. It must not be confused with the well-known red wine Affentaler (without the "h") from the Baden wine region, which is confusingly pressed in the geographically same area from the Pinot Noir (Blauburgunder) variety. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, the variety is the result of a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc (white heunisch) x sweet black. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). In other DNA analyses the sire variety could not be determined.
