The red grape variety (breeding number We 69-633-14F) is a new breeding between Blauer Limberger (Blaufränkisch) x Rubintraube (Teinturier du Cher) according to DNA analyses published in 2012. The Trollinger (Schiava Grossa) given as the parent variety in the breeding list turned out to be wrong. The cross was made in 1969 by the breeders Helmut Schleip and Bernd H. E. Hill at the Weinsberg Wine Institute (Württemberg). Plant variety protection was granted in 2002. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the new variety Cabernet Mitos. The early-ripening vine is resistant to frost, but susceptible to both types of mildew. It produces dark-coloured red wines and is particularly suitable as a colour enhancer in cuvées. It is cultivated in the growing regions of Baden, Pfalz and Rheinhessen. In 2018, five hectares of vines were reported in Germany with a falling trend (D STATIS).
