Pinot Blanc

Pinot blanc is one of the many variations of the pinot variety, resulting from pinot's frequent genetic mutations, with pinot noir having given birth to pinot gris, pinot meunier and a few more variations. In Alsace, Italy and Hungary, the wine produced from Pinot Blanc is a full-bodied dry white wine while in Germany and Austria they can be either dry or sweet. Pinot Blanc is also found all over Eastern Europe, and has found significant success in British Columbia, where it is in the top five most planted varieties. Pinot blanc produces a wine with fruity aromas, often of apples and melons, but it does not have very distinctive characteristics. It is rather high in acidity. Pinot blanc wines are usually made for immediate consumption and seldom meant for cellaring.
