The red grape variety (also Geilweilerhof 84-58-1233) is a new breed between Domina x Regent. The crossing was done in 1984 by the breeders Rudolf Eibach and Reinhard Töpfer at the vine breeding institute Geilweilerhof (Siebeldingen/Pfalz). The plant variety protection was granted in 2009. The early-ripening vine is resistant to both types of mildew and botrytis, which is why it is considered a PIWI variety. It produces colourful, tannin-rich red wines with a berry aroma and a smoky note as well as storage potential. In 2016, no stocks were reported (Kym Anderson).
