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 was made in 1948 at the Ukrainian Research Station for Viticulture in Odessa. Under the name Alibernet, the variety was a crossing partner in the new varieties Neronet and Rubinet.

The late ripening, high-yielding vine is quite resistant to botrytis and downy mildew, and only moderately resistant to frost. It produces dark-coloured, fruity red wines with aromas of peppermint and black berries, which are used for fortified wines and also as teinturier (dyer's grapes). The variety is grown in Ukraine in the Kherson, Nikolaex and Odessa areas, as well as on the Crimean peninsula. In 2010, 2,426 hectares were designated here. In 2010, there were further stocks in Slovakia (236 ha), the Czech Republic (17 ha) and Hungary (7 ha). This resulted in a total of 2,686 hectares in 2010, which was an increase of 60% compared to 2000 with 1,694 hectares.
