In German-speaking countries such as Austria, Germany and Switzerland, it is a common ingredient in the names of red wine varieties; for example, Roter Veltliner, Roter Muskateller, Roter Riesling, Roter Traminer and Roter Trollinger. However, these are white wine varieties because the colouring agents(anthocyanins) are not strong enough to produce a red wine. They result in a light-coloured (white, yellow, greenish) or maximum light red white wine.
