Kydonitsa

The white grape variety (also Kidonitsa) originates from Greece. The parentage (parentage) is unknown. It is believed that the variety (among many others) was used for the production of the famous Malvasia wines, which were shipped or exported from the historic Greek port of Monemvasia as early as the 13th century. The medium to late ripening vine is generally well resistant to vine diseases. It produces white wines with aromas of citrus and quince, from which its name is derived (Kidoni = quince). The variety is cultivated in small quantities in the southern Peloponnese in the area of Lakonia. It is usually blended with the equally rare variety Petroulianos. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
