Pinot Blanc

About this grape variety

Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc can be told apart from its ancestor only by their difference in colour when the grapes mature.

It is an early grape, sensitive to disease but resistant to dryness. It gives a wine that is robust, vinous, generous—a fine wine that is powerful and balanced with good acidity, often ideal for gastronomy

It can be light on aromas but gives a full softness and backbone to blends.
