The red grape variety is a new breed between Touriga Nacional x Sultana. It was crossed in 1965 at the CSIRO Plant Industry Institute in Merbein-Australia by the breeder A. J. Antcliff. The plant variety protection was granted in 1975. The late maturing vine produces light, acidic red wines with low tannin content. It is also used as a table grape. The variety is cultivated in Australia in the Murray Darling area. In 2010, it covered 72 hectares of vineyard area with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson).
