Reportedly a.k.a NY 65.533.13. Newly, (1996), released variety derived from a Traminer Rot x Joannes Seyve 23416 cross by Cornell Univ. viticulturists. Quite cold-hardy, bears large clusters and is suitable for cool climates, although own-rooted cuttings are reported to show rooting problems and shy fruit productivity in some areas.
