According to the breeding list, the white grape variety (also Badacsony 2, Zephyr) is a new variety between Hárslevelű x Leányka. In the VIVC catalogue, however, Hárslevelű x Fetească Albă is stated (Leányka and Fetească Albă are often confused). According to DNA analyses, both statements are wrong and the true parentage unknown (ex Wine Grapes). The cross was made in 1951 in Hungary by the breeder Ferenc Király. The early-maturing vine produces mild, aromatic white wines with flavours of redcurrants. It is cultivated in the areas of Eger and Etyek-Buda (for sparkling wine production). In 2016, 15 hectares of vines were reported with a decreasing trend (Kym Anderson statistics).
