Silver White

Confusing synonym for many mostly very old grape varieties, most of which are not related to each other. These include Chasselas (Silberling, Silberweißling), Elbling, Iordan (Klein Silberweiß), Juhfark, Mézes Fehér or Honigler, Räuschling and Silberweißer Veltliner (a mutation of Rotweißer Veltliner). In Austria, some winegrowers have very small stocks under the name Silberweißer. However, it is not always clear which variety is involved (in Austria these are mostly Elbling or Silberweißer Veltliner).
