The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Muscat du Moulin (Couderc 603 x Pedro Ximénez) x Muscat Ottonel. It contains genes from Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1962 by the breeders Bruce Reisch and Thomas Henick-Kling at the Vine Breeding Institute of Cornell University in Geneva, New York State. Under the name New York 62-0122-01, it was tested for a long time and plant variety protection was not granted until 2006. The medium-ripening vine, which is frost hardy down to minus 21 °Celsius, is moderately susceptible to both types of mildew and black rot, but resistant to botrytis. It produces floral white wines with spicy aromas and a subtle muscatel tone. The variety is grown in the US states of Indiana (6 ha in 2010) and New York (Statistics Kym Anderson).
