The white grape variety is a cross between Madeleine Angevine x Riesling (the breeding list stated Madeleine Angevine O.P. = open flowered ). It is not known whether this is an intended new breeding or a coincidental crossing. Synonyms resp. breeding-number are Alzey 7672, Madeleine Angevine x Unknown, p. 7672 and Seedling 7672. It is a pure female variety. The variety was selected around 1930 by Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the Landesanstalt für Rebenzüchtung in Alzey (Rheinhessen-Germany). The early ripening vine produces rather low-acid white wines with a citrus aroma and subtle muscatel. It was introduced to England at the end of the 1950s, where it was initially confused with the parent variety Madeleine Angevine. The variety is grown on 38 hectares in England and 10 hectares in Canada. In 2016, a total of 48 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
