Cabernet Cortis

Add to wish list

Origin: Cabernet Cortis is a fungus-resistant red wine variety bred in 1982 and crossed at the Staatlichen Weinbauinstitut Freiburg by Norbert Becker.

Interbreeding: Cabernet Sauvignon X Solaris 

Characteristics: This red wine variety has a medium bud burst time and grows upright with few side shoots and tendrils. The ripening time is early. Frost resistance is considered very good and significantly exceeds that of Riesling. Due to the robust berry skin, the amount of rot is low.


Downy mildew: niedrig mittel high sehr hoch

Powdery mildew: niedrig mittel high sehr hoch

Botrytis: niedrig mittel high sehr hoch

Grape: The grapes are elongated cylindrical, little shouldered with small, round berries still relatively loose during ripeness.

Wine: The wines are powerful, rich in color and have distinct tannins. They have a typical Cabernet Sauvignon character, with usually even more pronounced cassis aroma and taste.

Cultivation: The variety should be planted in good vineyard sites, which do not have to completely fulfill the site requirements of Pinot Noir.
