Noiret wine speaks to explain Noiret wine, what is Noiret wine and how is Noiret wine made.
This wine is produced from the noiret grape which is a hybrid variety and is used in the production of red wine.
This grape was cultivated and developed by researchers from Cornell University who were working at the prestigious New York State Agricultural Experiment Station were much state of art horticulture research is done.
The grape variety was officially released on July 7, 2006. Noiret is the result of a cross between the earlier hybrids NY65.0467.08 and Steuben in 1973; the predominant ancestors for these hybrids are Vitis labrusca varieties native to the northeastern region of North America and Vitis vinifera varieties, which are the classic European wine grapes.
Noiret ripens mid-season, and according to Professor Bruce Reisch of Cornell, its wines "are free of the hybrid aromas typical of many other red hybrid grapes. The distinctive red wine is richly colored and has notes of green and black pepper, with raspberry and mint aromas, and a fine tannin structure."
In the few years the wine has been available it has become a favourite of those who understand and enjoy wine.
