The white grape variety (also SV 12-481) is an interspecific new breeding between Seibel 6468 x Seibel 6746, containing genes of Vitis berlandieri, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the fungus-resistant hybrids was carried out at the beginning of the 20th century by Bertille Seyve (1864-1939) at the Seyve-Villard vine nursery, using creations by Albert Seibel (1844-1936). The variety was a cross-breeding partner for the Freiburg new varieties Donauriesling, Helios (1), Johanniter. In 2016 no stock was recorded (Kym Anderson).
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
