What You Need To Know About Pinot Blanc Wine And Food

Pinot Blanc is found in the Alsace region of northeastern France, and is also grown in Italy, Germany, Austria, Uruguay, Argentina, Canada, California, and Oregon. Pinot Blanc has a light, neutral aroma but is highly acidic and often full-bodied. Pinot Blanc is food friendly. Among the suggestions are Blackened Fish, Flounder, Seafood Cocktail, Fettucine Alfredo, and Crab Louis.

Pinot Blanc starts at about $10. Get started in the $14 range with an Erath Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley (Oregon) that is soft and fruity, carrying pear and melon flavors. This is not a wine to age. In the same price range if you are looking at a light, fresh wine another choice is the Pierre Sparr Pinot Blanc Reserve with some pear, lemon, and melon. If you are ready to spend almost $10 more take a chance on the WillaKenzie Estate Pinot Blanc from the Willamette Valley. This wine is full of tropical fruits with some orange blossom and honeysuckle. It's rich and nicely acidic, and you can age it for a couple of years.
