Diolinoir

Although created as a blending grape to improve the colour of some Swiss wine, there are now some good examples of Diolinoir on its own. In the Valais this produces a fine and quite powerful wine, usually barrel aged, with excellent deep colour, as might be expected, good tannins and quite a bit of power. Anticipate cherry and black fruits, particularly blackberry, with some spice and earthiness.

Diolinoir originates from the Caudoz research centre in Switzerland thanks to André Jaquinet in 1970.

A Swiss grape born and bred, Diolinoir is a cross between Robin Noir (sometimes known as Rouge de Diolly) and Pinot Noir, taking its name from its parents.

Excellent deep colour, good tannins and quite a bit of power.
