The white grape variety with reddish berries probably originates from Hungary. The name is derived from the Hungarian wine-growing region of Szekszárd. Synonyms are Mezes Fekete, Sarfekete Goembuelyue, Szekszárd Rouge, Szekszárdi Piros and Tihany Kék. According to DNA analyses, it originates from a presumably natural cross between White Heunish (Gouais Blanc) x unknown partner. Nothing is known about possible genetic relationships with the white variety Szeredi (with the synonym Szekszárdi, which also descends from White Heunish) or the red variety Tihanyi Kék. It is possible that Szekszárdi and Szeredi are identical. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
