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

    I bought this because I love reds and the label was striking. Paid under $10. I was shocked at the taste of this Walla Walla Washington red. Fruity, earthy, a bit spicy and a wonderful finish with tannins to tickle your gums. Cannot believe this is priced so low. Well, I'm off to purchase a few more bottles.Lefty- The Great Pacific Northwest Read More

  • While Sonoma is well known for red wines -- just think of all the Dry Creek Zinfandels, Alexander Valley Cabernets, and Russian River Pinots that we’ve fallen in love with -- it’s now time to give Sonoma’s whites their due!

  • Hello All!I'm putting a menu together for a wine pairing and wonder if anyone can recommend a white in the $25 range that pairs well with mushrooms stuffed with foie gras, they will be served alongside a carmelized onion bread pudding, so I guess I need a pretty significant white to stand up to that.  I would even consider a red if there is a be...
