Diamond

Name of varietal: Diamond

Common synonyms: Moore’s Diamond, White Diamond

Parentage of the grape: Concord, Iona

History of the grape: The varietal dates back to the 1880s when horticulturalist Jacob Moore (hence the synonym “Moore’s Diamond”) crossed Concord with Iona grapes in Brighton, NY. The varietal had been associated with table wines that are relatively high in residual sugar, as was the popular style. More recently, plantings have declined as consumers drift toward releases using European varietals. However, vintners continue to produce small amounts of Diamond, with efforts toward more elegant table and sparkling wines with in less sweet styles.  

Characteristics of the grape: full-bodied, slightly oily, very grapey, golden apples

Regions where the grape is currently important: New York, Pennsylvania

Type or types of wines the grape produces: dry white, sparkling
