The white grape variety is a new breed between Kövidinka x Savagnin Blanc(Traminer). Synonyms are Jubilejni 75, Jubilejni 75, K 11, Kecskemét 11 and Miklostelep 11. DNA analyses carried out in 2012 revealed that the parentage Ezerjó x Pinot Gris given in the breeding list was wrong (however, this is based on only 19 DNA markers; see Molecular Genetics). The cross was made in Hungary in 1951 by two private breeders András Kurucz and István Kwaysser. The late ripening red berry vine is sensitive to frost. It produces full-bodied white wines with moderate acidity. The variety is grown at Lake Balaton (Balaton) and in the Csongrád and Kunság areas. In 2010, the area under cultivation in Hungary was 194 hectares (statistics Kym Anderson).
