The white grape variety is a new variety between Red Traminer(Gewürztraminer) x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012. By the way, the varieties Perle and Würzer also originated from the same pair of parents. The cross was made in 1927 by Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the State Institute for Vine Breeding in Alzey(Rhineland-Palatinate). The vine produces spicy, rather low-acid wines. Due to its special aromatic properties, it is known as a so-called bouquet variety. However, it has not become established; in 2010, only two hectares were designated in Rheinhessen.
