White wine grape
A white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera, Pinot gris, pinot grigio, or Grauburgunder is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. It is thought to be a pinot noir mutant clone with a grayish-blue fruit, hence the name, but the grapes can range in color from brownish pink to black and even white. The grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters, which may have given it the name pinot. This grape’s wines range in color from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it’s one of the most common grapes for skin-contact wine.Link to here... | Derived from 'Pinot gris' on Wikipedia
