Generally used attribute for all grape varieties from which white wine is pressed. All these grapes are usually described as "white" or as white wine varieties, although in many cases the berries may not be of white but of light green, green, yellow, golden, brownish, light red and also red colour. For only from blue to black grapes can a red wine be pressed. See also on this topic under the keywords blanc de blancs (white wine from white grapes), blanc de noirs (white wine from dark grapes), blue, red and black and colour.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
