Dedo de Dama

The white grape variety comes from Portugal. Synonyms are Almenhaca, Alminhaca (second main name), Bougseb, Bouqseb, Bouqsob, Fedit 51-C, Ferral Branco, Lambrusque A and Teta de Cabra. According to the last DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Dika II and an unknown partner. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The variety was a parent of the presumably natural crosses Boal Branco, Chelva and Diagalves. It is used as a wine press and table grape and is grown in the Centro and Norte regions in very small quantities. In 2016 a scarce hectare of vineyard area was designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
