The red grape variety (also M-43) is a new variety between Cabernet Franc x Zweigelt. It was crossed in 1975 by the breeder Lubomír Glos in Moravská Nová Ves in Moravia. The plant variety protection was granted in 2001. The late maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to botrytis. It produces dark-coloured, aromatic red wines with aromas of cassis and storage potential. The variety is grown in the Czech Republic, especially in Moravia. In 2010, 212 hectares of vineyard area were declared here, but no stocks were recorded in 2016 (statistics Kym Anderson).
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
