The white grape variety (also BV 06.06.67) is a complex, interspecific new variety between Merzling x (Seyve-Villard 12-375 = Villard Blanc x Pinot Gris). The name is derived from Pinot Gris. It contains genes from Vitis berlandieri, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in the Czech Republic by a team led by Vilém Kraus (1924-2013). The plant variety protection was granted in 2008. The late ripening vine is well resistant to botrytis and powdery mildew, and also moderately resistant to downy mildew. It produces yellow-green, aromatic white wines with a vegetable note. The variety is cultivated in Moravia in very small quantities. In 2010, however, no stocks were recorded (Kym Anderson).
