Dominatrix

The red grape variety is a new breed between Blauer Portugieser x Pinot Noir, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2013. Synonyms are Geilweilerhof 4-25-7 and Rotspechter. The crossing was made in 1927 by the breeder Peter Morio (1887-1960) at the vine breeding institute Geilweilerhof in Siebeldingen-Pfalz. Here it was further processed or selected by Dr. Bernhard Husfeld (1900-1970) in the 1950s. Plant variety protection was granted in 1974. The variety was a crossing partner in the new Calandro breeding. The medium-ripening, high-yielding vine has a medium botrytis resistance and tends to stalk paralysis. However, it is well resistant to chlorosis, viruses, trickle and frost. The variety produces red wines similar to Pinot Noir, but with a slightly more acidic, extract-rich flavour with aromas of bombs and cherries. The cultivated area in Germany is 366 hectares (D-STATIS). Small stocks also exist in Switzerland (0.1 ha) and Hungary (0.6 ha). In 2016, a total of 375 hectares of vineyard area were designated (Kym Anderson).
