The white grape variety (also briefly Faber, S. Alzey breeding number 10375) is a new breed between Pinot x Muller-Thurgau (some sources incorrectly stated Silvaner x Pinot Blanc). The crossing was made in 1929 by Georg Georg Scheu (1879-1949) at the State Institute for Grapevine Breeding in Alzey (Rhineland-Palatinate). The Plant Variety Protection was granted in 1967. The early-maturing, high yielding vine is somewhat susceptible to stem necrosis . It provides golden wines with pronounced acidity and subtle flavor muskatigem. In 2009 she won in Germany, 551 hectares of vineyards. The trend is strongly downward, because ten years earlier there had been more than 1,300. In 2008, an initiative of a few wineries "Relaunch F" started to give the increasingly forgotten varieties screened trends, a new image and revive. To a lesser extent it is represented in England.
