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.

Pinot Blanc on Snooth

  • Scubla Pinot Bianco 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Expansive aromatic s of kiwi, spicy green fig, cherimoya and green tea with hints of green apple. The broad palate hosts that same green apple component flecked with lime leaf, green mango and a generous dose of cool mineral.

  • Grand River Cellars Stonewood White NV

    Snoothrank:

    A white made from Niagara grapes, a sweet variety. Is a distinct variety to the Great Lakes region as well as the Pacific Northwest. It is the result of crossbreeding Concord (GRC: Wine Hound Red) with white Cassady grapes.

  • Grand River Cellars Stonewood White NV

    Snoothrank:

    Off-dry/semi-sweet blend of Pinot Grigio and Vidal Blanc. Similar to GRC Susannas White less the Chardonnay and in different proportions. Very light bodied, qualities of Pinot with more sweetness than the Susannas due to higher % of Vidal Blanc. Pairs well with Mexican, Thai, Indian, or other spicy foods. Read More
