The white grape variety is a new cross between Hárslevelű x Piros Tramini (Red Traminer = Gewürztraminer). Synonyms are Eyerfürte, Ezerfurfu, Kecskemét 5 and Miklóstelepi 5. The cross was made in 1950 in Hungary by the breeders András Kurucz and István Kwaysser. The early-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost, but sensitive to drought and susceptible to botrytis. It produces alcohol-rich, neutral white wines with fine acidity. At the end of the 1970s to the beginning of the 1980s, it was cultivated on a large scale in the large socialist farms. The variety is cultivated on 264 hectares in Hungary and 31 hectares in Romania. In 2016, a total of 295 hectares of vines were reported, with a strong downward trend (Kym Anderson statistics).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
