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

    Lots of peach, nectarine, and passion fruit flavors coat the tongue. Sweeter style but not overbearing. Refreshing. Read More

  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Hills Horse Heaven Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This sauvignon blanc gives me what I have been looking for in a pinot gris.. This wine is a real buy at $11 which is what I got six for at safeway. It is a real crowd pleaser. Good complexity and an explosion of flavor with a clean finish. Drinking great right now but I suspect it will evolve in the bottle for a year or two.. Read More
