Acolon

Artificial cross of Blaufränkisch and Dornfelder created at the Weinsberg Research Centre in Baden-Württemberg (D) in 1971, Acolon was officially registered in 2002. An early grape rich in anthocyanins and sugar, this variety is quite common in the Rhineland Palatinate region of Germany, but it is rarely found in Switzerland, where it produces wines similar to its ancestor Blaufränkisch (or Blauer Limberger).
