Pinot Blanc is an interesting grape, that despite being planted and used in many countries around the world, is not fully understood or recognized by consumers.
It's original homeland is the region of Alsace in France, and a little bit of Germany. It is actually a mutation of the red skin grape Pinot Noir.
Pinot Blanc produced in Europe tends to have a full-bodied feeling, robust, aromatic, rich, often golden in colour which can have spicy smokey aromas. It can be dry or sweet. Some other countries outside Europe do make it in a crisp, dry, lighter style as well.
