Translation is "white wine made from black grapes."
(White from black) Made from red grapes. The skins are kept in contact with the juice for a short period only, to get small quantities of pigment to give a blush of colour. The red grapes are crushed and the juice is slowly drained away. Whatever colour is leached out as the juice is moved through the mass of skins, will be retained as the colour of the final wine. The wine is then made as if it were a white wine. It can be dry, off-dry or semi-sweet.
Meaning 'white from black' this is a white or slightly pink sparkling wine made from 85% or more of a dark-skinned grape variety, usually pinot noir.
