The white grape variety comes from Turkey. Synonyms are Erkek Yapincak, Kinali Yapincak, Yapakak, Yapincak Kinali and Yapindjac. The late ripening vine is generally well resistant to vine diseases and drought. Significant are the red-spotted berries to which the name (meaning "girl with freckles") refers. It yields low-acid white wines with aromas of apples, pears and quinces and is also used as a table grape. The variety is cultivated in the north-western Marmara region. In 2016, however, no stocks were reported (Kym Anderson).
