Synonym for the grape variety Rotweißer Veltliner, but sometimes also referred to as an independent variety, namely a mutation of Roter Veltliner. In any case, a variety is still cultivated under the name Silberweißer Veltliner in very small populations in Austria. In 2016, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson). See also under Veltliner.
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.Thomas Götz
