The white grape variety (also Tarcal 10) is a new cross between Hárslevelű x Bouvier. The cross was made in 1967 in Hungary by the breeders László Brezovsik and Gáborné Szakolczay. The early-maturing, high-yielding vine is moderately susceptible to fungal diseases, but resistant to winter frost. It produces acidic white wines with lime blossom aroma. It has been permitted for Tokaj since 2006; however, it occupies only 1% of the vineyard area in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region. In 2016, a total of 30 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson statistics).
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
