VB Cal. 1-22
New variety - VB Cal. 1-22
- General: The new "Cal. series" by Valentin Blattner resulted from crosses of different resistance partners. The variety "Cal 1-22" is the result of multiple crosses with different resistance genetics. It belongs to the Piwis with the highest robustness against fungal diseases. Its thick berry skin protects it reliably against botrytis, which allows a long ripening time on the vine and thus aroma and tannin ripeness.
- Cluster: Short panicle, thick berry skin, thus very good resistance to botrytis. Late ripening about one week after Pinot Noir. The leaves remain deep green and capable of assimilation until the end of the vegetation. Medium growth vigour, somewhat drooping, forms very many stingy shoots, very good wood maturity.
- Wine: The wine of the "Cal 1-22" shows a deep red colour with violet reflections. On the nose it presents cassis aromas, as well as the scent of violets, herbs, leather and tobacco and is close to Sangiovese with a ripe acidity and soft tannins.
- Cultivation: Best resistance properties of all Blattner crosses even under Swiss conditions with annual precipitation around 1.200 mm and fog - as well as valley and forest edge locations.
