The white grape variety comes from Greece. Due to missing DNA analyses, the exact parentage is not known (status end of 2013). The medium ripening vine is generally quite resistant to diseases and drought. It produces fresh, acidic white wines with aromas of peaches and stone fruits. The variety is cultivated in smaller quantities in the north-east of the Peloponnese.
