The red grape variety is a new breed between(St. Laurent x Blauer Portugieser) x Alibernet(Odessky Cherny). The crossing was made in 1965 in Lednice (South Moravia) in the former Czechoslovakia by a team led by Vilém Kraus (1924-2013). The variety was taken over in Germany by Hermann Jäger in Ockenheim (Rheinhessen) and further developed in breeding. The plant variety protection was granted in 1991. The early maturing vine is resistant to winter frost and botrytis. It produces dark, tannic red wines with aromas of sour cherries and cassis (black currants). These are often used in blend as Teinturier (dyer's grape). The variety is cultivated in the Czech Republic (33 ha) and Slovakia (39 ha). In 2010, a total of 72 hectares of vineyard area was declared (statistics Kym Anderson).
