The crossing was made in 1928 by N. Paponov, V. Zotov, P. Tsarev and P. Golodriga at the Wine Institute Magarach in Crimea (Ukraine). Plant variety protection was granted in 1969. She was a cross-breeding partner in the new varieties Antey Magarachsky and Rubin Golodrigi. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and drought. It produces fruity, colourful red wines and is also used for table grapes and grape juice. The variety is grown in Ukraine, Kazakhstan (0.5 ha) and Uzbekistan. In 2010, however, only less than one hectare was designated (Kym Anderson).
