Something for everyone
Whether as white wine, sparkling wine or sekt - Pinot Blanc fans know what they get from the mutation of Pinot Gris. A bit of Riesling, but less acidic. A bit of chardonnay, just not quite as creamy. It's a balancing act that doesn't have to hide from anyone. Simply one of the best white wines directly from Germany, France, Italy and Austria. Sometimes the label says Pinot blanc, sometimes Pinot bianco, white Burgundy or sometimes Klevner. Many names, one grape, immeasurable character.
Pinot Blanc taste
The fruity and fresh Pinot Blanc 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 aromas are combined with the neutral acidity in the pale to light yellow body, velvety and spicy in the glass waiting for the first sip. Moderate alcohol content and mellow acidity make the Pinot Blanc white wine an uncomplicated summer wine that can be combined with almost any dish.
Over the Alps and even further
Possibly grown between Lake Geneva and the Rhône, Pinot Blanc has developed into a widespread and noble grape variety, especially in Germany. Popular in Baden, Rheinhessen and the Pfalz, creations from Saxony and the cultivated areas around Saale-Unstrut inspire experts time and again. The cultivation proves to be quite problem-free on not too moist soils and in a climate that would already be too warm for the Riesling. Pinot Blanc has a mind of its own, a real youngster.
