The white grape variety is a new breed between the red varieties Prokupac x Pinot Noir. Synonyms are Garganja, Jouplanka, Žhupljanka, Zouplanca and Žsuplyanka. The crossing was made in Serbia by Dragoslav Milisavljevic. Plant variety protection was granted in 1970. The late ripening vine is resistant to botrytis, but susceptible to both types of mildew and sensitive to frost. It produces fresh, neutral white wines. The variety is grown in Serbia in the Fruška Gora (Vojvodina) area. There are also other stocks in Croatia (4 ha), Montenegro and Northern Macedonia. In 2010, however, only in Croatia a stock was reported (Kym Anderson). Župljanka is also a synonym for Chasselas, but there is no relation to it.
