The red grape variety (also Mi 5-76) is an interspecific new variety between Merlan x Fratava. It contains genes from Vitis aestivalis, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis labrusca, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1985 in the Czech Republic by a team led by Vilém Kraus (1924-2013). Plant variety protection was granted in 2011. With the same parents, the new varieties Cerason, Laurot, Marlen and Nativa were also created. The late-maturing vine is quite resistant to botrytis and downy mildew, and only moderately resistant to powdery mildew. It yields ruby-coloured, tannic and acidic red wines with aromas of dried plums, cherries and berries. The variety is cultivated in Moravia; however, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
