The white grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Moll, Pensal Blanca, Premsal (second main name), Premsal Blanca and Prensal Blanc. Although synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate this, it should not be confused with the Afus Ali or Xarello (Premsal Blanca) varieties. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a direct descendant of the Hebén variety, but the second parent is unknown. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The medium-ripening, high-yielding vine is susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces finely acidic, fruity white wines, which are mostly used as blends. The variety is authorised in the Balearic Islands in the DO area of Binissalem (Mallorca). In 2010, 105 hectares of vineyards were registered (Kym Anderson statistics).
