The red grape variety is a new variety between Blauer Limberger (Blaufränkisch) x Dornfelder, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2012. Synonyms are Cabernet Acolon, WE 71-816-102 and Weinsberg 71-816-102. 1971 the cross was made by the breeders Helmut Schleip and Bernd H. E. Hill at the State Teaching and Research Institute for Viticulture and Fruit Growing in Weinsberg (Württemberg). The plant variety protection was granted in 2002. The early maturing vine produces a colourful red wine similar to Limberg with discreet tannins. The cultivated area in Germany is 469 hectares. There are further stocks in England, Switzerland (3 ha) and Hungary (5 ha). In 2016, a total of 477 hectares of vineyard area were designated with a slightly declining trend (statistics Kym Anderson).
