In Switzerland (especially Graubünden), a common name for a reddish coloured wine made from red and white grapes mixed before pressing (i.e. not a blend of musts or wines). The designation rosé is not permitted, however, because only red grapes are allowed for this purpose. The name is derived from the salmon red "iridescent" colour of the wines. Similar wines in Germany are Badisch Rotgold (Baden), Schieler (Saxony), Schillerwein (Württemberg) and Rotling. Schillertraube, on the other hand, is a synonym for the autochthonous grape variety Blauer Wildbacher, from which the rosé wine Schilcher is made in the Austrian province of Styria.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
