Wine By Grape Variety | Chambourcin
Chambourcin is a purple-skinned red wine hybrid grape variety that is widely planted in the United States and Australia. It can be made into a dry style or one with a moderate residual sugar level. Chambourcin is a "teinturier", a grape whose juice is pink or red rather than clear like most red vitis vinifera cultivars. It is noted for its distinctive dark colouring and herbaceous aroma. Chambourcin wines are often spicy, with black cherry and plum flavours, and a range of herbal characters.
