The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Big Extra (Extra) x Triumph. It contains genes from Vitis lincecumii, Vitis labrusca and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1887 in the USA by the botanist Thomas Volney Munson (1843-1913). She was a crossbreeding partner in the new Black Queen and Muscat Bailey A. The high-yielding vine is sensitive to winter frost, but resistant to various diseases. It produces neutral tasting red wines without Foxton. The variety is grown in the central south in the states of Kansas and Missouri. In 2016, however, only in Brazil was a stock of 49 hectares reported (statistics Kym Anderson).
