Hardy to -35F. This is a sister seedling of St. Croix. Ripens about a week after St. Croix to around 20 brix. Very good disease resistance, this is one of the toughest vines that we grow. Trailing growth habit with strong vigor. This variety may prove useful in areas too cool for most other varieties. Seems to produce better wines in cool years or from colder sites. Sometimes develops off-aromas on hot sites. Wine is dark in color and fruity with nice berry aromas and flavors.
