Keknyelű grape cluster

Kéknyelű is a white Hungarian wine grape planted primarily in the Badacsony wine region near Lake Balaton. The grape produces full bodied, smokey wines.[1]

It was assumed to be identical with the Italian grape variety Picolit.[2][not in citation given] Nonetheless, in 2006 isoenzymes and microsatellite analyses have confirmed that these two cultivars are different.[3]
