The red grape variety is a complex new breeding between Cabernet Sauvignon and other four Vitis vinifera varieties. The crossing was done in 2000 at the CSIRO Institute in Merbein-Australia. The plant variety protection or release for cultivation was granted in 2017. The vine is resistant to hot climatic conditions. It produces dark-coloured, fruity and rather alcohol-light red wines with soft tannins and aromas of blackberries and chocolate. The variety is under experimental cultivation at the Brown Brothers Winery (Milawa in the King Valley, Victoria).
