The red grape variety (also Mi 5-76) is an interspecific new variety between Merlan x Fratava. It contains genes of 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). The plant variety protection was granted in 2011. With the same parents, the new varieties Cerason, Laurot, Marlen and Nativa were created. The late ripening vine is quite resistant to botrytis and downy mildew, and only moderately resistant to powdery mildew. It produces ruby, tannic and acidic red wines with aromas of dried plums, cherries and berries. The variety is grown in Moravia; however, no stocks were recorded in 2010 (statistics Kym Anderson).
