Tricoloured Heunisch

The origin of the white grape variety is unknown. Synonyms are Beriertraube, Boboleihs and Dreifärbiger Heunisch. It is a colour mutation of the white heunisch variety (Gouais Blanc). The name derives from the change in colour (véraison) during the ripening phase from bronze-red to pale red and white. The pink Celtic variety no longer has any commercial significance in viticulture; in 2016 no stocks were recorded (Kym Anderson statistics). See a list of the different varieties of the Heunisch group under Gouais Blanc.
