The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Petra x Bianca. Synonyms are Backa, Ister, SK 86-3-276 and Sremski Karlovci 86-3-276. It was named after the region (Bátska) shared by the two countries Hungary and Serbia. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the new variety Rubinka. It contains genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in Serbia by the two breeders Petar Cindric and Nadar Korac. Plant variety protection was granted in 2002. The vine is resistant to frost and generally to fungal diseases. In 2020, 26 hectares of vineyards were registered in Hungary (statistics of the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture).
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
