The special type of wine from Slovenia is classified as PTP. The name is derived from the Slovenian name for the sour thorn due to its sour taste. The bright red wine is a blend of white and red wines. This is not permitted under EU wine law, so an application for an exemption was successfully made. Although it is a rosé-like wine, it may not be called rosé. The rules of production comprise 23 articles, including the grape varieties. The red wine is made from Žametovka = Blue Cologne (40-50%, with special permission up to 60%) and Modra Frankinja = Blaufränkisch (15-20%, with special permission up to 30%). The white wine is produced from Kraljevina = Red Portuguese (10-15%), Laski Rizling = Welschriesling (up to 15%), and the rest alternatively from Rumeni Plavec = Plavec Zuti, Zeleni Silvanec = Silvaner, Bela Žlahtnina = Chasselas and Stajerska Belina = Ranfol. The dry, acidic and low-alcohol wine may have a maximum of 2.5 g/l residual sugar. A grape mixture is also used for Badisch Rotgold, Rotling, Schieler, Schiller and Schiller wine. See also a list under Rosé.
