Winning vine

The white grape variety is a new breed between Madeleine Angevine x Red Traminer(Gewürztraminer), which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012. Heinz Scheu (the breeder's son) later claimed in a book that the variety originated from an open flowered Madeleine Angevine. Synonyms are Alzey 7957, Scheu 7957 and Sieger. The cross was made in 1929 by Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the State Institute for Vine Breeding in Alzey-Rheinland-Pfalz. Plant variety protection was granted in 1958. The variety was a crossing partner for the new varieties Augusta Luise, Hildegardistraube, Muscabona, Ortega, Rosetta, Sissi, Tamara and Thekla. The early ripening vine has berries rich in sugar, but low in acidity. It produces golden yellow, alcohol-rich white wines with Muscat. Because of its special aromatic properties, it is called a so-called bouquet variety. There are stocks in Germany (75 ha), Canada (22 ha) and Switzerland (0.1 ha). In 2016, a total of 102 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
