Pinot Blanc

 

Name of varietal: Pinot Blanc
 
Common synonyms: Weissburgunder, Klevner, Feher Burgundi, Pinot Bianco, Rulandske Bile, Rulandske biele, Blanc Vrai
 
Parentage of the grape: genetic mutation of Pinot Noir
 
History of the grape: Pinot Blanc was first grown in Burgundy and Champagne, France, and can be traced by some sources as far back as the 1st century. For a long time, little distinction was made between it and Chardonnay, however a number of vintners who knew what they were doing began producing it as a varietal release. It eventually came to prominence in the Alsace region, where it is one of the four most common grapes grown there. It made its way across Europe and to other parts of the world from there and is now a popular grape in cooler climate regions where it is most able to thrive. 
 
Characteristics of the grape: light to medium-bodied, acidic, grapefruit rind, peach, apricot, canteloupe, honeysuckle, white pepper

    Agreed on strawberries and a dusky but delicate wordiness. Quite bright for a domestic Pinot, but tasty. Read More

  • Sperling Vineyards the Market White 2010

    Snoothrank:

    An interesting blend of mainly Pinot Blanc and Bacchus. This wine is soft and aromatic with notes of peach, coconut, and flowers. Mid weight and good length and complexity. Soft tangy supportive acidity seems really well balanced here, as does just a touch of residual sugar. A winner for originality - I've never had anything quite like this wine. Read More

  • Terlan Pinot Bianco "Rarity" 1979

    Snoothrank:

    Stony on the nose with aromas of white peach, white flowers, and a hint of dusty, peppery spice. Bright and gorgeous on entry with notes of candied apricot, waxy fruit, and nectarine skin. This is a touch more rustic on the palate, showing a bit of astringency, but at the same time it exhibits such purity of fruit and a long, remarkably clear f... Read More

  • Terlan Nova Domus Terlaner Riserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

    60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Sauvignon BlancTight, though very floral on the nose with a hint of red fruits on the nose. In contrast this is supple and wide open in the mouth delivering melon and slightly astringent quince flavors that lead to a long finish showing super persistence to the melon, mineral and crab apple flaovrs. 93pts Read More
