Blaufränkisch
Blaufrankisch (a.k.a. Lemberger and Kékfrankos) is a black-skinned wine grape grown widely in Austria and Hungary. It has been called "the Pinot noir of the East" because of its spread and reputation in Eastern Europe. In Germany it is known as Lemberger.

The grape is grown across Central Europe; Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Croatia. Tiny quantities are also grown in the United States. In Austria, Blaufrankisch is the second most popular red-wine variety behind Zweigelt (a crossing of Blaufrankisch with Austria's other signature red variety, Saint-Laurent).

Classic Austrian Blaufrankisch wines are intensely colored, medium-bodied reds with brooding, fruit-forward profile with aromas of spiced black cherries and a hint of peppery spice.

Blaufrankisch was long thought to be genetically identical to Pinot Noir, and even Gamay Noir, which explains its Croatian and Bulgarian nicknames Borgogna and Gamé. Modern DNA profiling has now shown that Blaufr?nkisch is a cross between Gouais blanc (Wei?er Heunisch) and an unidentified Frankish variety.[3] One of the candidates for the Frankish parent is Blauer Silvaner.
