The white grape variety is a new variety between Ezerjó x Bouvier. More synonymous are B 10, Badacsony 10 and Zeus. The variety named after the Greek god was crossed in 1951 in Hungary by the breeder Ferenc Király. The same parents also produced the new varieties Zengő and Zenit. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is resistant to frost, but moderately susceptible to botrytis. It produces full-bodied, acidic white wines with fresh tropical fruit aromas. The variety is cultivated in the Badacsony, Balaton and Somló areas. In 2016, 27 hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson statistics).
