Mézes Fehér

The white grape variety originates from Hungary. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Goldtraube, Honigtraube, Honigler (second main name), Weißer Honigler (Germany); Bousquet Précoce (France); Honigler Bianco (Italy); Bieli Medenac (Croatia); Alfölditraube, Honigler, Langstingler, Silberweiß(Austria); Alföldi Fehér, Aranyka, Aranyka Sarga, Batai, Budai Fehér, Margit, Mézédes, Mézes, Mézes Fehér Szölö, Sárfehér, Sarféjer, Sárga Margit, Sárga Zsölö, Szagos Sárfehér, Zsige (Hungary). The name part "honey" probably refers to the high sugar content of the grapes. It must not be confused with the varieties Arany Sárfehér, Juhfark (Sárfehér) or Sárfehér, despite seemingly indicating synonyms or morphological similarities. DNA analyses carried out in 2009 and morphological similarities suggest a possible close relationship with the Austrian variety Roter Veltliner. The variety Mézes Fehér was a crossing partner in the new variety Lakhegyi Mézes.
