The early to medium-maturing, rather low-yielding vine is moderately sensitive to wintry frost, as well as relatively resistant to Botrytis and both mildews, It produces fresh, fruity white wines with aromas of citrus and apples, as well as storage potential. The variety is in the fields Balaton (Balaton), Eger. Etyek-Buda (here also for the sparkling wine production) and Mátraalja common.
