The white grape variety is a new variety between Roter Traminer (Gewürztraminer) x Müller-Thurgau. The crossing was made in 1927 at the Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture in Würzburg by Georg Scheu (1879-1949), who called it "Pearl of Alzey". After the selection by Dr. Hans Breider (1908-2000) in 1950 it was called Perle. Plant variety protection was granted in 1968. From the same pair of parents the new varieties Septimer and Würzer were developed. The early to medium maturing vine is susceptible to Botrytis. It produces flowery, low-acid white wines. Because of its special aromatic properties, it is called a so-called bouquet variety. It is cultivated in Franconia and Rheinhessen. In 2018, only 13 hectares of vineyard area were designated in Germany, with a strongly decreasing tendency (D-STATIS).
