The red grape variety (also Nerkarata, Norakert) is an interspecific new variety between Seyanets C 1262 (Vitis Amurensis Ruprecht x Csaba Gyöngye) x Karmrahyut. It contains genes of Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in Armenia in 1960 by S. A. Pogosyan. With the same parents also the new breed Charentsi was created. The vine is resistant to frost to minus 28 °Celsius. The sugar-rich grapes make it particularly suitable for the production of dessert wines. It is cultivated in the north-eastern province of Tavush. In 2010 no stock was recorded (Kym Anderson).
