The white grape variety (also Freiburg 207-70) is a complex new breeding between (SV 12-375 = Villard Blanc x(Pinot Gris x Chasselas Blanc)) x ((Silvaner x Chasselas Blanc) x Madeleine Royale). The crossing was made in 1970 by Dr. Johannes Zimmermann (1907-1998) at the State Viticulture Institute Freiburg (Baden-Württemberg). The medium-early maturing, high-yielding variety is very resistant to frost and fungal diseases. This versatile vine is used as a wine grape, table grape and ornamental vine.
