The red grape variety is a new breed between Sumoll x Cabernet Sauvignon. The crossing was made in 1972 at the CSIRO Plant Industry Institute in Merbein-Australia by Alan Antcliff. The plant variety protection was granted in 2000. Incidentally, the new varieties Cienna and Rubienne were created with the same parents. The vine produces dark, tannic red wines with cherry aromas. It is cultivated in Australia in the Hunter Valley and Riverina (New South Wales) areas, where it is mainly used as a blend. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
