The red grape variety is a new breed between Deckrot x Blauer Portugieser. The crossing was carried out in 1972 at the Geisenheim Research Institute (Rheingau) by Dr. Helmut Becker (1927-1990). Externally, it is very similar to its father variety. The vine is resistant to frost and fungal diseases. The red-fleshed berries produce deep dark red wines, which are excellent as Teinturier (cover wine). The variety occupies 58 hectares of vineyards in Germany (Baden, Rheinhessen, Pfalz) and 13 hectares in Switzerland (Schaffhausen).
