The red grape variety (also CATAP 6/28) is a new variety between Castets x I-35-9 6/28 =(Teinturier du Cher x Aleatico) x Pukhliakovsky. The sire population was established in Russia. The crossbreeding was done in 1967 in Slovakia (then Czechoslovakia) by Dorota Pospíšilová. The new breed Torysa was created with the same parents. It is named after a river in the east of Slovakia. The plant variety protection was granted in 2011. The high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and botrytis, but somewhat susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces dark, full-bodied red wines with a Cabernet Sauvignon-like aroma and ageing potential. The variety is grown on five hectares in Slovakia (ex Wine Grapes).
