The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Kunbarat x Pinot Noir. Synonyms are SK 77-5-3, Sremski Karlovci 77-5-3 and Petka. It contains genes from Vitis amurensis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in Serbia in 1977 by Petar Cindric. The vine is susceptible to powdery mildew and sensitive to late frost. It produces white wines rich in alcohol with a muscat tone, which are suitable for dessert wines. The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Andor, Backa, Borsmenta, Jázmin and Rubinka. No stock was recorded in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
