Marlen

The red grape variety (also Mi 5-26) is an interspecific new variety between Merlan x Fratava. The name is an anagram of the parent variety. 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 2012. With the same parents, the four new varieties Cerason, Kofranka, Laurot and Nativa were created. The medium to late ripening vine is generally resistant to various fungal diseases. It yields dark-coloured, fruity red wines with harmonious tannins and a spicy aroma reminiscent of André. The variety is cultivated in Moravia; however, no stock was reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
