This cultivar was released by the Geisenheim Research Station, Germany, in 1962. Has the technical name GM 4984. It was derived from a Müller-Thurgau variety cross with the Chancellor (a.k.a Seibel 7053) hybrid cultivar and can currently be found in limited acreages on the south island of New Zealand where it is mainly used for producing somewhat neutral varietal and blend white wines. Resistant to Bunch Rot and Downy Mildew fungus diseases. Somewhat similar wines are made from the Geisenheim cultivars (noted below) currently grown in Nova Scotia, Canada.
