Savagnin Rose

The white grape variety is a rarely occurring or only in small quantities cultivated variety of Traminer (see general information there). There are numerous synonyms, some of which are also used for the variety Gewürztraminer and some for Traminer in general. The most important ones, grouped alphabetically by country, are Mala Dinka, Prinç(Bulgaria); Clevner, Clevener, Durbacher Clevner, Rotfrenschen, Traminer (Germany); Fromenteau Rouge, Fromenté Rose, Klevener de Heiligenstein, Savagnin Rose Non Musque, Savagnin Rouge (France); Traminac Crveni, Traminac Rdeci (Croatia); Roter Traminer, Traminer (Austria); Heidarot (Switzerland); Piros Tramini (Hungary). Savagnin Rose is a rosy berry mutation of Savagnin Blanc. It is often confused with Gewürztraminer, a mutation of Savagnin Rose with musque tone. Since Savagnin Rose does not have this tone, it is also called Savagnin Rose Non Musqué.
