Blauer Augster

The red grape variety probably originates from Austria-Hungary (at the time of the Habsburg monarchy). Synonyms are Augster Bleu, Bajor, Bajor Kék, Blaue Bronnertraube, Blaue Oliventraube, Blauer Ranful, Blauroter Ritscheiner, Blaustengler, Fingerhuttraube, Goher Kék, Goher Noir, Ritscheiner, Schwarzer Augster, Schwarzer Türkischer Augster, Török Bajor, Török Gohér, Unechte Geißdutte. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it originated from a presumably natural cross between White Augster x Vulpea. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see Molecular genetics). It was cultivated in Burgenland (then Hungary) in the 18th century. It is an all-female grape variety. Significant are the large, elongated oval berries. The variety is suitable for pressing and for table grape. It is cultivated in Hungary in the Etyek-Buda area. In 2016, 0.1 hectares of vineyard were designated there (Kym Anderson).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
