The white grape variety comes from Spain, Synonyms are Blanca Pequene, Marisancho, Parda, Pardilla, Pardillo de Madrid, Parill Blanco and Temprana Media. Until 2009, the official name was Pardilla , which has often caused confusion. Because Pardilla is also a synonym for Pardina, which is not an independent variety, but in the province of Bajadoz (Extremadura) common name for Cayetana Blanca, Pardillo is also not allowed with the morphological similar variety Albillo Real be confused. The late ripening, productive vine is susceptible to Botrytis but resistant to drought, It produces white wines with high alcohol content. The variety was found mainly in Spain La Mancha in 2010 a total of 4,364 hectares of vineyards with a strongly decreasing tendency (ten years earlier there were 7,272 hectares).
