The white grape variety is a new variety between Raffiat de Moncade x Sauvignon Blanc. The crossing was carried out on behalf of the INRA by the Basque Pierre Marcel Durquéty (1923-2016) with the support of the University of Montpellier. The Arriloba was created with the same parents. It produces a fruity wine reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. No stocks were reported in 2010 (Kym Anderson).
