The white grape variety is a new variety between Red Traminer(Gewürztraminer) x Müller-Thurgau, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2012. In 1932, this was one of the last crosses made by Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the Rebenzüchtungs-Anstalt Alzey in Rhineland-Palatinate. The varieties Perle and Septimer were developed from the same pair of parents. Plant variety protection was granted in 1978. The early to medium-ripening, high-yielding vine is resistant to downy mildew, but sensitive to winter frost. It produces yellow to golden-green, spicy white wines with significant perfumed notes. Due to its special aromatic properties, it is known as a so-called bouquet variety. In Germany, the cultivated area is 65 hectares with a strongly decreasing tendency. Small stocks can also be found in England (4 ha) and New Zealand (4 ha). In 2010, a total of 70 hectares were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
