Mátrai Muskotály

The white grape variety (also Mátrai Muskatály) is a new cross-breed between Izsáki Sárfehér (Arany Sárfehér) x Muskat Ottonel, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2005. However, this is based on only 14 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The cross was made in 1952 by the breeder Pál Kozma in Hungary. Plant variety protection was granted in 1982. The medium to late ripening, high-yielding vine is moderately susceptible to fungal diseases. It yields aromatic white wines with fresh acidity and muscat tone. The variety is cultivated in the areas of Etyek-Buda and especially Kunság. In 2020, a total of 14 hectares of vineyards were designated (Statistics Ministry of Agriculture Hungary).
