Zakynthino

The white grape variety comes from Greece. Synonyms are Zakintino and Zakinthino. Although the name suggests an origin from the island of Zakynthos, it actually comes from the Peloponnese peninsula. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is probably a natural cross between Koutsoumpeli x Mavrodaphne. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The medium maturing, high-yielding vine is generally well resistant to disease. It produces fresh white wines with aromas of lemon and apricot. The variety is cultivated on the Ionian island of Kefallonia and in Peloponnese. However, no stocks were recorded in 2010 (Kym Anderson).
