Odessky Cherny

The red grape variety is a new variety between Alicante Henri Bouschet x Cabernet Sauvignon. Synonyms are Alibernet (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary); Odeskij Cornyi, Odessa Black, Odesskii Chernyi, Semenac 1-17-4 (Ukraine). The crossing took place in Odessa in 1948. Under the name Alibernet, the variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Neronet and Rubinet. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to botrytis and downy mildew, and only moderately resistant to frost. It yields dark-coloured, fruity red wines with aromas of peppermint and black berries, which are used for fortified wines and also as Teinturier (colouring grapes). The variety is grown in Ukraine in the Kherson, Nikolaex and Odessa areas, as well as on the Crimean peninsula (1,250 ha), in Slovakia, in the Czech Republic and in Hungary (8 ha). In 2016, a total of 2,508 hectares of vines were reported (Kym Anderson statistics).
