Cabernet Labrusco

The red grape variety (Breeding No. Rodrigues Cabernet Labrusco No 2) is a new variety between Cabernet Sauvignon x Danugue. The name has no relation to the species Vitis labrusca, but is derived from the Portuguese term "labrusco" for "rough" or "wild". The cross was made in 1994 by the breeder Dr. Jeronimo Rodrigues, University Cape Town, in South Africa. The vine is resistant to fungal diseases such as anthracnose and powdery mildew. It is grown in small quantities in the Constantia area. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
