Pannon Frankos

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between (Vitis amurensis x Vitis vinifera) x Irsai Olivér. It contains genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1965 in Hungary by the breeders István Koleda and János Korbuly. The medium to late ripening vine is resistant to frost. It produces deep red, fine-acid red wines with a spicy aroma. It is mainly cultivated in the Kunság area. In 2020, a stand of 14 hectares of vines was reported (Statistics Ministry of Agriculture Hungary).
