The white grape variety originates from Hungary. Synonyms are Extrai, Fehérszölö, Hosszucipkaju Fehér, Langstängler, Langstieler, Langstingler and Nyarhaju. It must not be confused with the Juhfark (Hosszunyelü) variety. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Braghină Rosie (Bagrina) x Listzes Fehér. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). It was described in 1887 by Hermann Goethe (1837-1911) in his Ampelographie. Allegedly, there are small areas in Baden(Germany) and in Banat (Hungary). However, no populations were reported in 2016 (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.
