Schwarzer Elbling

The red grape variety originates from Germany. Synonyms are Blauduftiger Trollinger, Blauer Elbling, Cerny Cynifal, Elbai Kék, Elben Schwarz, Erjava Lipovshina, Kék Elbai, Lipovshna Großrot, Mala Modrina, Schwarzelbling, Schwarzer Elben, Trolinger, Velka Kavka, Zerna Belina and Zherna Lipovshna. The parentage is unknown. Despite homonymous synonyms, the variety must not be confused with the independent varieties Blauduftiger Trollinger (synonym Schwarzelbling, unknown parentage), Blauer Elbling (Riesling x Schiava Grossa) or Pinot Salomon (synonym Schwarzer Elbling, Pinot x Elbling). The DNA profiles of all four varieties are different (see under Elbling). The Willbacher variety is presumably a variety of Schwarzer Elbling. No stock was recorded in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
