Something for every Pinot Blanc
Whether as white wine, sparkling wine or sparkling wine - Pinot Blanc fans know what they have in the mutation of Pinot Gris. A little bit of Riesling, only less acidic. A bit of Chardonnay, only not quite as creamy. Just a balancing act, which does not have to hide from anyone. Simply one of the best white wines directly from Germany, France, Italy and Austria. Sometimes it says Pinot blanc on the label, sometimes Pinot bianco, white Burgundy or sometimes Klevner. Many names, one grape, immeasurable character.
Pinot Blanc Taste
The fruity and fresh Pinot Blanc shines with an exotic bouquet of pineapple, apricots, mango and citrus, paired with local nuts, apples, pears and apricots. All fresh from the orchard, the Pinot Blanc flavors combine with neutral acidity in the pale to light yellow body that is velvety and zesty in the glass waiting for the first sips. Moderate alcohol content and the solid acidity make the Pinot Blanc white wine an uncomplicated summer wine that can be combined with almost any food.
Over the Alps and even further
Possibly grown up between Lake Geneva and the Rhône, Pinot Blanc has developed into a widespread and noble grape variety, especially in Germany. Particularly popular in Baden, Rheinhessen and the Palatinate, creations from Saxony and the vineyards around Saale-Unstrut have delighted experts time and again. Cultivation proves to be quite problem-free, on soils that are not too moist and in a climate that would already be too warm for Riesling. The Pinot Blanc has a mind of its own, a real youngster.
