Carignan Blanc

The white grape variety comes from France. It is a colour mutation of the red variety Mazuelo (Carignan Noir, Cariñena). Synonyms are Cariñena Blanca, Fehér Carignan and Karijan. But the variety is not called Mazuelo Blanc (as one might think). The late maturing vine is very susceptible to powdery mildew. It produces full-bodied, acidic white wines with citrus aromas. Under the name Carignan Blanc, it is cultivated in the south of France, especially Languedoc-Roussillon on 353 hectares and in Romania on 2 hectares. In 2016, a total of 355 hectares of vineyards were designated. No more stock has been recorded for the pink berry mutation Carignan Gris (Kym Anderson).
