Forcallat Blanca

The white grape variety originates from Spain. Synonyms are Forcallat, Forcayat and Luisa Blanca. Its parentage is unknown. However, it should not be confused with the Airén variety (with the synonym Forcallat Blanca), with which it has great morphological similarities. It is also not a colour mutation of the red variety Forcallat Tinta. It is cultivated in the regions of Extremadura, Castilla-La Mancha, Murcia and Valenciana. In 2016, 80 hectares of vineyards were designated under the name Luisa Blanca (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
