Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Pinot Gris
Traditional (planted before 1900) | 233 HA in Switzerland (1,59%)

A color mutation of Pinot Noir that appeared independently in several places, Pinot Gris was first mentioned in 1711 in Baden-Württemberg (D) under the name Ruländer. In Switzerland, this early variety and relatively sensitive to mildew is called Grauburgunder in German Switzerland, and Malvoisie in Valais, borrowing this name from the real Italian Malvasia (Malvasia Bianca) which was renowned for its sweet wines. Its wines can be dry, with aromas of hazelnut and a little bitterness, or sweet (“withered”), with aromas of quince and apricot.
