Pinot Gris

Called Malvoisie in Valais, this grape has nothing to do with any of the Malvoisie varieties of the Muscat family and is another of the mutations of Pinot Noir. A vine grown in many of the Swiss areas, in Valais, Pinot Gris produces a fine sweet late harvest wine with honey overtones.

Synonyms: 

Malvoisie (French-speaking Valais), Grauer Burgunder, Ruländer, Tokayer (German-speaking areas)
