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

  • ‘Hey, I’m hearing great things about the Finger Lakes,’ spoken by the collective ‘they.’ Sure, I’d tasted a bottle of Konstantin Frank or two, but embarrassingly had never visited. Summer heat finally drove me to the car, down past the paper trail of Scranton, PA’s ‘The Office,’ north bound to Ithaca, the tail of Cayuga Lake, where all the smart... Read More

  • Winking Owl Vineyards Shiraz Los Angeles County NV

    Snoothrank:

    I really like this wine, I have been drinking it for a couple of years and I think it is the best one that Winking Owl makes and tastes as good and better than some much more expensive wines I've tried. I too would like to see them try a Pinot Grigio or a Sauvignon Blanc. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    This is the second time I am writing a review of this wine. Drinking the 2008. It's been open for about 3 days. It's still smooth and crisp. It doesn't seem to have the floral bouquet, but it's totally drinkable and totally enjoyable. Read More

    Wine review by joe10


  • Outside of Italy or an Italian family winery elsewhere, how does a winery make the choice, do we suppose, whether to call it gris or grigio?  CA has both.  The pacific NW seems to exclusively have gris.  Other new world areas seem to be mixed.  Interesting. Read More
