Vitis 'Marquette'

Grape
  • Summary
  • Additional Details

  • »  Hardy and highly disease resistant with excellent wine quality

Makes wonderfully sophisticated reds. Wine writers have been waxing poetic about this variety for over a decade now because of its high sugar content and moderate acidity. This combination is capable of producing highly complex wines with a deep ruby color, exquisite tannins and flavors of blackberry, cherry, black pepper and allspice. The grapes are blue-black and gorgeous on the vines, which have a semi-upright habit and medium vigor. Developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2006. Ripens early-to-mid September. Self-pollinating.
