Variety

In the case of a grape variety, this means that a rather slight deviation caused by mutation is to be understood, which is expressed, for example, by different berry colours, as in the case of Pinot with Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Pinot Précoce(early Burgundy). Such grape varieties are also called mutants or clone mutants. On the other hand, variety is understood as a variety in its own right. See also vine systematics and grapevine.

Pinot-Sorten - Pino Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Frühburgunder

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
