Developed in Ontario, Canada in 1974. A cross of Chelois x Elvira, it is a very productive, cold hardy, crack resistant replacement for Elvira. The berries are high in sugar as well as acidity, and ripen with Concord. Although considered a hybrid by its parentage, the wine has a pronounced labrusca aroma and flavor. The vine is susceptible to tomato ringspot virus and may need grafting on virus infected sites.
