The red grape variety (also SV 12-309) is an interspecific new variety between Seibel 6468 x Seibel 6905(Subereux). It contains genes of Vitis berlandieri, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the hybrids was carried out by the French breeder Bertille Seyve (1864-1939) at the Seyve-Villard vineyard. She was a crossing partner for the two new varieties Riesling Magaracha and Riesus. The vine is resistant to the vine disease Pierce Disease. It produces fruity red wines. The variety is especially suitable for hot and dry areas and is mainly cultivated in the USA Gulf Coast region. However, no stocks were reported in 2010 (Kym Anderson).
