Noiret produces an excellent full-bodied, richly colored wine. The wines can resemble Shiraz (Syrah) with a distinct black pepper character, moderate tannins, and notes of raspberry, blackberry and mint. Vines are vigorous and tend to have low yields; use vineyard practices that favor high fruit zone exposure.
Noiret is a hybrid grape variety with a rich history and a bright future. Developed by Cornell University in the 1980s, Noiret is a cross between the French-American hybrid grape, Ravat 34, and the French-American hybrid grape, Vidal. This grape variety is known for its dark color, structured tannins, and intense aromatics. In the right climate, Noiret grapes can be used to make a variety of red wines, including dry reds, sparkling wines, and even sweet wines. If you're looking for an interesting grape variety to add to your vineyard, Noiret is a great choice.
When planting Noiret, it's important to provide the grapes with the proper environment to ensure a good harvest. Noiret grapes can be grown in many climates, but they do best in warm and dry climates with good sun exposure and well-drained soils. Planting in cold and wet climates can lead to disease and reduced yields. When planting Noiret, it's best to provide a trellis system to give the grapes support as they grow. You should also prune and thin the grapes to ensure a healthy harvest.
When it comes to harvesting Noiret grapes, the timing of harvest is key. The grapes should be harvested when they have reached their full ripeness and flavor. This is usually when the grapes have reached their full color and the seeds are dark brown. Harvesting too early can lead to sour grapes and reduced flavor, while harvesting too late can result in overripe and raisined grapes.
