The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between (Amurensis x Vinifera) x Afus Ali. It contains genes of Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in Hungary in 1960 by István Koleda and István Tamassy. She was a crossing partner in the new breeding Zlata. The medium to late-maturing vine is moderately resistant to botrytis. It produces acidic white wines with aromas of citrus fruits and apples, which are mainly used for sparkling wine production. It is cultivated in Hungary mainly in the Csongrád, Hajós-Baja and Kunság areas of the Hungarian Plain (Alföld). In 2010, a total of 1,211 hectares of vineyard area were declared (statistics Kym Anderson).
