Antey Magarachsky grapes
Antey Magarachsky is a black-skinned grape variety acknowledged as a Ukraine hybrid created during the research in the center of Yalta.
This hybrid managed by the breeders – Golodriga, Usatov, Troshin, Malchikov and Dubovenco is frequently used to make sweet red wines of different styles.
Also, Antey Magarachsky is included in the list of varieties which are cultivated grapes, which are used for wine or as a table grape.
In 1971, the well-known breeders, P Y Golodriga, V T Usatov, L P Troshin, Y A Malchikov and N Dubovenco obtained the hybrid Antey Magarachsky.
It was done at the Magarach research center in Yalta in southern Ukraine. At first, it was thought as a cross between Rubinovy Magaracha and Magarach 85-64-16 and later as the offspring of Perle Noire propagated with a mixture of unknown Vitis vinifera varieties.
According to the DNA parentage analysis, Perle Noire is the parent not the grandparent and so Antey Magarachsky parentage was reformed to the combination of Rubinovy Magarach and Perle Noire.
In 1988, Antey Magarachsky was officially included in the list of the registered grape varieties in Ukraine.
Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
