Maraština (Rukatac, Maraškin, Mareština, Krizol, Višana) is an indigenous white grape variety from the Dalmatian coast, recommended for all Dalmatian sub-regions, and the Croatian Coast, except Istria.[1] On the island of Cres, it is known as krizol, and in other parts of Dalmatia it is known as rukatac. As it is widely grown, other local names exist, for example đurđevina, kačebelić, kače-debić, kukuruz, mareština, and marinkuša.[2]

DNA analysis has shown[2] that maraština is closely related to the Italian variety Malvasia del Chianti.
