Entry in the State Variety Book 2004.
The wine is extractive, with a delicate aroma, high quality, with Riesling-type acid.
The white grape variety was bred at the Research Institute in Geisenheim, Germany by Professor Dr. Helmut Becker. It comes from interspecific crossing: Seibel 7053 x Riesling, clone 239 Gm F-2.
The sprouting of the variety is moderately late, reaching harvest maturity in the first half of October. Resistance to downy mildew and oidium is medium to high (in some years it is necessary to spray against downy mildew before flowering and after flowering), medium resistance to noble rot. The variety matures for 1-2 weeks before Riesling, yield is the same as Riesling, average sugar content slightly higher and acids by 3% lower than Riesling.

The wine is extractive, with a delicate aroma, high quality, with Riesling-type acid. The variety is suitable for all types of soils. (In heavy soils, unpleasant elderberry tones may appear in the wine in some years when the grapes overripe)
The wine has interesting aromatic substances and fine tannins.
