The white grape variety is a new breed between Riesling x Bukettrebe, Synonyms are Alzey p. 88, dr. Wagner vine, Scheu 88, S-88, Scheu Riesling and as the second main name (in Austria) seedling 88 . It was in 1916 by the German breeder Justus Georg Shy (1879-1949) in the state institute for vine breeding in Alzey (Rheinhessen). The bouquet was only made in 2012 DNA analysis identified as having the name of the parent Sylvaner turned out to be wrong. Even experts can be wrong, because Scheu had in a lecture in 1935 claimed that the Bukettrebe would not have proven to be a crossing partner.
Already in his lifetime one wanted to give this variety the name "Scheu's Liebling"; but the breeder refused.
