Pinot Blanc

1683 visitors
In the United States, many of the vines called Pinot blanc are actually a different variety, Melon de Bourgogne/Muscadet, that resembles Chardonnay when on the vine. This mistake was discovered around the mid 1980s by a French oenologist who was examining rootstock while visiting University of California, Davis, and now Pinot blanc purchased from a nursery will be the genuine article. The grape is also grown in Austria and Hungary as well as in Burgundy, France.

Pinot blanc has also been confused with Chardonnay, and wineries often vinify it in a similar style, using barrel fermentation, new oak and malolactic fermentation. It can also be treated more lightly and made into a crisper wine that still has some ability to age.
More information on Pinot Blanc
Food Pairing: Pairs well with salads, soft cheeses, and nuts. Delicate fish and shrimp dishes work well with Pinot Blanc, as does a dessert fruit plate or tart.

2005 Pinot Blanc
Santa Maria Valley

While much of the Pinot Blanc in California is planted to a related grape variety, Byron's vineyards consist solely of the true Pinot Blanc clone. Grown on 25-year-old vines that w ...moreere grafted to Pinot Blanc in 1991, this noble variety flourishes in our cool, often foggy, coastal valley. With genetic links to Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc—when made with care—is a distinctly aromatic, richly textured white wine.

Byron 2005 Pinot Blanc is stylish and crisp, offering bright aromatics and pure fruit flavor of richly layered texture. Aromas of orange blossom, lemon and lime are accented by hints of mineral and all spice. Vibrant flavors, including honey, clove and lemon zest culminate with a bright finish.

2006 Pinot Blanc
Anderson Valley, Hein Vineyard

This is Handley Cellars’ first Pinot Blanc, originating from Hein Vineyard, which is located at the northern end of Anderson Valley, very near Handley’s Estate Vineyard.

Pinot Blanc is reminiscent of a crisp Chardonnay, and thus pairs well with some of the same foods. It shows a bit more spice than Chardonnay, so it will balance mildly spicy curries with scallops or prawns.

2006 Pinot Blanc
Shop Block, Russian River Valley

When Steve said he had a couple of rows of Pinot Blanc at the main Dutton Ranch Shop available last year, we couldn't resist the opportunity to make this wine. Pinot Blanc, the whi ...morete grape cousin of Pinot Noir, is a natural choice for the cold valley site at the original home ranch. The classic Green Valley conditions of cold, foggy nights and sunny days enhances the varietal's aromatics, bright acidity and cleansing minerality. Our 2006 Pinot Blanc is crisp and fresh, with juicy apricot and peach aromas and steely just-picked apple flavors. It's a racy, bright wine, cool and refreshing for sipping on a hot summer afternoon or evening. We made just 112 cases from this small block.
