The white grape variety is a new variety between the red varieties Prokupac x Pinot Noir. Synonyms are Garganja, Jouplanka, Rebula, Žhuplyanka, Zouplanca and Žsuplyanka. The cross was made in Serbia by Dragoslav Milisavljevic. Plant variety protection was granted in 1970. Župlyanka is also a synonym for Chasselas, but there is no relation to it. The late-ripening vine is resistant to Botrytis, but susceptible to both powdery mildews and sensitive to frost. It yields fresh, neutral white wines. The variety is grown on 250 hectares in northern Macedonia and 255 hectares in Serbia in the Fruška Gora area (Vojvodina). In 2016, a total of 505 hectares of vines were designated (Kym Anderson).
