The red grape variety (also Seibel 5898) is a complex interspecific new breeding between Jaeger 70(Munson) x Seibel 3015 (Bayard x Afus Ali). It contains genes from Vitis aestivalis, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed by the French breeder Albert Seibel (1844-1936). The late maturing vine is resistant to downy mildew. It produces light red wines, which are mainly used as blending partners. The variety is cultivated in the US states of Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, New York and Pennsylvania. In 2010, 42 hectares of vineyards were planted in the USA (Kym Anderson).
