Cabernet Carol

The red grape variety (also FR 428-82 r) is a new variety between Cabernet Sauvignon x(Merzling x(Zarya Severa x Muscat Ottonel)). In some sources this is indicated in the form Cabernet Sauvignon x Solaris; the father variety later became the Solaris variety. There are genes from Vitis amurensis, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1982 by Norbert Becker (1937-2012) at the State Viticulture Institute in Freiburg. With the same parents the new variety Cabernet Cortis was created. The late maturing vine is resistant to frost and downy mildew. It produces colour-intensive, extract- and tannin-rich red wines similar to Cabernet Sauvignon. The variety is cultivated in Germany in the Baden region (6 ha) and in Switzerland in the canton of Bern (0.1 ha). In 2016, a total of 6 hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
