The white grape variety (also Badacsony 2, Zephyr) is a new variety between Hárslevelü x Leányka (ex VIVC catalogue). According to DNA analyses this is wrong and therefore the parentage is unknown (ex Wine Grapes). 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). The area under cultivation in 2010 was 49 hectares (Kym Anderson).
