The white grape comes from Greece, Synonyms are Zakintino and Zakinthino. Although the name is an origin of the island Zakynthos suggests that it actually comes from the peninsula of Peloponnese. According to done in 2013 DNA analysis it is a presumably natural cross between Koutsoumpeli x Mavrodaphne, However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see under molecular Genetics ). The medium maturing, high yielding vine is generally resistant to disease. It produces fresh white wines with aromas of lemons and apricots. The variety is on the Ionian island Kefallonia and up Peloponnese grown. In 2010, however, no stocks were reported (Kym Anderson ).
