The white grape variety is a new cross between Müller-Thurgau x Siegerrebe. Synonyms or breeding numbers are Thekla grape, Thekla grape and Würzburg B 48-21-3. The cross was made in 1948 by the breeder Dr. Hans Breider (1908-2000) at the Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture in Würzburg. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the three new varieties Muscabona, Ortega and Tamara. The variety is mainly used as table grape. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
