The white grape variety is a cross between Madeleine Angevine x Riesling (in the breeding list Madeleine Angevine O.P. was = open-pollinated indicated). It is not known whether this is an intended new breeding or an accidental crossing. Synonyms or breeding numbers are Alzey 7672, Madeleine Angevine x Unknown, S. 7672 and Seedling 7672. It is an all-female grape 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 a discreet muscat tone. It was introduced to England towards 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 vines were designated (Kym Anderson).
