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

    Lightly nutty, honeyed aromas of green apple and peach. Fresh and lively palate with zesty citrus notes of tangerine, grapefruit and lemon with some stone fruit coming through as well, soft mousse and bright acidity make for a fun, easy drinking selection Read More

    Snoothrank:

Since I had not had any wine from the Heiss family holdings in years, I looked forward to updating my knowledge of this beautiful vineyard and its produce. I was not disappointed: the wine is almost chardonnay-like with apple... Read More
