Severny (Seianetze Malengra X Vitis amurensis) X (Muskcat Lunel X Muscat de’ Alecandrie); Has been grown since 1947 as its own variety in Southern Russia under the name of Zwetotschny. Semi-erect growth, long, loose clusters, conical with up to threefold grapes without wings, round, small green/yellowlish berries with uncoloured fruit flesh. Very good resistance against winter and late autumn frost, good peronospora, oidium and botrytis tolerance, with little tendency to burst after autumn rainfall. Grapes have strong, musk aroma of flower blossom. High ability to gain sugar and through withering process well suited for sweet winemaking.
Merzling X Gim 6494 (Saperavi severnyi X St. Laurent); Merzling itself was bred from Seye Villard 5-276 X (Rieselung X Rulander) and Gm 6494 consists in turn f
rom Zarya Severa X St. Laurent. Since the year 1977 with variety protection, only Vitis Vinifera, from Freiburg im Breisgau / Germany. Sprouts late, on average sensitive to frost, small susceptibility to peronospora & oidium. Berries ripen medium to late. The wines are fresh and subtly fruity. In the case of good, physiological ripening of the grapes very harmonious, tender and similar to Bürgunder.
Solaris X Gelber Muskateller Solaris = Merzling X Zarya Severa x Muskat-Ottonel; only Vitis Vinifera since 1987 with variety protection from Freiburg im Breisgau / Germany. Very high resistance against peronospora – adequate resistance against oidium, strong growth, medium ripening time, inconsistent yield, high ability to produce sugar; intensive wines of Muskat type.
Bronner X Cabernet Sauvignon; Bronner = Merzling X Saperavi X St. Laurent; combination of Vitis Vinifera Vitis Rupestris, Vitis Aestivalis and Vitis Amurensis types, since 1983 with variety protection, from Freibung im Breisgau / Germany. Very good resistance against peronospora & oidium, onion skin to red berry colour, generally later berry ripening, reduced cluster density and thicker berry skins mean grape decay is rare; strong as well as colour intensive wines which paired to Riesling with Burgund wines – with its powdery notes – also hint of Sauvignon.
