The red grape variety (also Seibel 14596) is an interspecific new variety between Seibel 6468 x Seibel 5455(Plantet). It contains genes of Vitis aestivalis, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis cinerea, Vitis labrusca, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed by the French breeder Albert Seibel (1844-1936). The vine is resistant to various fungal diseases such as powdery and downy mildew and botrytis. It produces light red rovings with a light foxtone, which is mainly used for blends. There are small stocks in France. It is used at the Institute for Grapevine Breeding Geilweilerhof (Siebeldingen-Pfalz, Germany) as a crossing partner for fungus tolerant(PIWI) new varieties. In 2016 no stocks were reported (Statistik Kym Anderson).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
