Salvador Noire

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Jaeger 70 (Munson) x unknown Vinifera. Synonyms are Pate Noir, Salvador, Salvadore and Seibel 128. It contains genes from Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed at the beginning of the 20th century by Albert Seibel (1844-1936). The vine is susceptible to botrytis, but resistant to powdery mildew. It produces dark-coloured red wines, which are very suitable as colour-giving Teinturier (colouring grapes) when blended. It is cultivated on a larger scale in Mexico on 350 hectares. There are other stocks in Spain (1 ha) and in California (43 ha in 2010, but no stock was recorded in 2016). In 2016, a total of 351 hectares of vines were recorded (Kym Anderson statistics).

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.
