The red grape variety (also CATAP 9/17) is a new breeding between Castets x I-35-9 9/17 = (pollen mixture of Teinturier du Cher, Aleatico and Pukhliakovsky). The father variety originated in Russia. The cross was made in 1967 in Slovakia by Dorota Pospíšilová. By the way, the new variety Rudava was also created with the same parents. It is named after a river in the east of Slovakia. The variety protection was granted in 2011. The medium to late ripening, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and botrytis, but somewhat susceptible to powdery mildew. It yields dark-colored, full-bodied red wines with a Cabernet Sauvignon-like aroma and good aging potential when properly aged. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
