The red grape variety (also CATAP 9/17) is a new variety between Castets x I-35-9 9/17 =(Teinturier du Cher x Aleatico) x Pukhliakovsky. The sire population originated in Russia. The crossbreeding was made in Slovakia in 1967 by Dorota Pospíšilová. By the way, the new breed Rudava 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 medium to late-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost and botrytis, but somewhat susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces dark-coloured, full-bodied red wines with a Cabernet Sauvignon-like aroma and good ageing potential. The variety is cultivated in Slovakia on one hectare of vineyard area (ex Wine Grapes).
