The white grape variety (also Badacsony 2, Zephyr) is according to the breeding list a new variety between Hárslevelü x Leányka. But in the VIVC catalogue Hárslevelü x Fetească Albă is mentioned (Leányka and Fetească Albă are often confused). According to DNA-analyses both statements are wrong and the true parenthood is unknown (ex Winegrapes). The cross was made in Hungary in 1951 by the breeder Ferenc Király. The early maturing vine produces mild, aromatic white wines with aromas of currants. It is cultivated in the areas of Eger and Etyek-Buda (for sparkling wine production). In the year 216, 15 hectares of vineyard area were declared with a decreasing tendency (statistics Kym Anderson).
