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'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in the Central Coast.  I wanted to do a little wine tasting, and we headed over to Edna Valley.  For some reason Edna Valley seems to be the least appreciated AVA in the Central Coast region. I really don't get it.  There are several wineries there that offer terrific products at... Read More

  • I first encountered Serbian wines two years ago at the Balkans International Wine Competition. My discovery was about more than some new, exciting wines; it was also about a renaissance of vineyards, varieties and heritage. Over the last fifteen years, as Serbia began gathering its wits after Yugoslavia’s crack-up, winemakers have been ratchetin... Read More

  • Have enjoyed several versions over the years, but I always go back to the classic in cream sauce with the first and last batches of the season.
