The white grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Gaidouricha, Gaidouriha, Gaydura (Turkey) and Guydourina. The parentage is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2011, there is a parent-offspring relationship with the variety Assyrtiko. The early-maturing, low-yielding vine is relatively resistant to vine diseases. It produces aromatic white wines with moderate acidity and a light tannin flavour. The variety originates from the Cyclades, where it is cultivated in small quantities on Santorini. There are also stocks in the province of Urla near the coast in the far west of Turkey. However, no stock was recorded in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
