The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Seyanets Malengra x Amurensis. Synonyms are Aurore du Nord, Zaria Severa and Zora Severa. It contains genes of Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1936 by Ya. I. Potapenko and E. Zakharova at the Viticulture Research Institute in Rostov(Russia). It is an all-female grape variety and is therefore dependent on cross-pollination. The new varieties Mitschurinski and Severny were created with the same parents.
Because of its high resistance to frost and downy mildew and partly powdery mildew, it is often used in Eastern Europe and Germany for breeding. For example, she was a crossing partner in GM 6493 and GM 6494, which were used as breeding material, and either directly or via these two breeding material vines, the variety Zarya Severa was involved in the new varieties Baron, Bronner, Cabernet Cantor, Cabernet Carbon, Cabernet Carol, Cabernet Cortis, Monarch, Prior, Rondo, Solaris and Souvignier Gris.
