The white grape variety (also Szila) is a new variety between Kövidinka x Chardonnay. It was crossed in Serbia by the breeders P. Cindric, V. Kovac and S. Lazic. The plant variety protection was granted in 1988. The late maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to botrytis, but sensitive to frost. It produces light, acidic white wines. The variety is cultivated in Serbia in the western part of the Vojvodina region. However, no stock was reported in 2010 (statistics Kym Anderson).
