Probably one of the most ancient V.vinifera cépages in existence. Now regarded as a semi-classic variety and used to create the celebrated “Vin jaune” of the Jura region of France. Also known by the synonym name Frankisch in Austria. Is one of the few wines in which maderization is desirable and acquired with long bottle-aging. Now thought to be clonally related to the Traminer variety still grown in that area of Europe. Sometimes called Klevner in the Alsace region of France. Known as the Heida (Paën) in Switzerland.
