After diverse scientific studies published by CSIC, it is an autochthonous variety from Asturias which was quoted by Suarez Canton prior 1879. Is a short period vine with an early ripening (even ahead Chasselas vine), with a high level of adaptation to the region and in general to mountainous areas. Is scantly fertile producing few and small bunches of grapes. The grapes are gold yellow and translucent so you can glimpse the seeds in the interior.
Furthermore, the grapes have a strong sugar concentration compared with other white varieties of the zone but with an equilibrium in sharpness and a strong aromatic richness. During the total grape ripening there is a noticeable Muscat flavour and flower bouquet
