Pinot Blanc

Weissburgunder in Austria & Germany
A white grape from Burgundy, Pinot Blanc is often mistaken for Chardonnay. Its stronghold is in Central Europe and Alsace. The wine is characterized by a delicate bouquet with a fresh, yeasty, appley aroma. Its similarly restrained flavors are of apples and pears, walnut and hazelnut. Austrian Weissburgunder is usually vinifed as a powerful but harmonious white wine rich in extracts with a fine almond-like taste and piquant acidity. Most wines are full bodied and designed to be drunk with food.

"In Austria as Weissburgunder, the variety reaches its greatest heights…. As a dry white varietal, Weissburgunder is associated with an almond-like scent, relatively high alcohol and an ability to age."
Jancis Robinson, The Oxford Companion to Wine
