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

  • When the guys at Snooth recently introduced the concept of page ownership on the site, I felt that I should step up and take on the ownership of Sonoma Valley. It is a very cool feature (find more info here) which, I believe, will help people understand what the region brings from the basis of what Snooth is about a community based review. A... Read More

    Beautiful fruit and structure masked slightly by use of oak. A little hot on the finish. Needed food like grilled white fish drizzled with lemon juice and oil. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely, restrained, balanced lychee, soft spice and flowers. Still, there's really much more to it than "Here's an interesting New World Gewürztraminer..." Chile's lesser-known cool region wines are already on the major export markets (Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc), but they are about to invade the US market on a much more significant scale. ...
