Silver white

Confusing name or synonym for many mostly very old grape varieties, most of which are not related to each other. It could refer to the colour of the berries or leaves. These are Chasselas (Silberling, Silberweißling), Elbling, Iordan (Klein Silberweiß), Juhfark, Mézes Fehér or Honigler, Räuschling, Sárfehér, 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 it is (in Austria these are mostly Elbling or Silberweißer Veltliner). However, no stocks were reported under this name in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
