Kurtelaska Bijela

The white grape variety originates from Croatia. Synonyms are Korčula, Kortola, Kortolaska, Kurtelaska, Kurtalaska, Kourtelachka Blanche, Kurtelasca, Kurteluska and Kurtolaska. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2020, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Bombino Bianco x Mostosa. It shows great morphological similarity with the Gegić variety, with which it shares the parent variety Bombino Bianco. The vine produces acidic, aromatic white wines with ageing potential if properly matured. It is cultivated on the Dalmatian islands of Korčula and Vis and is also used as table grape. No stock was reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
