The Villa Wolf estate (founded as J.L. Wolf) lies in the picturesque village of Wachenheim in the Pfalz region in Germany. Ernst Loosen, of the famed Dr. Loosen estate in the Mosel area, took over the winery in 1996 and, under his stewardship, Villa Wolf wines have developed a global reputation for impeccable clean wines that are obviously great value.
Villa Wolf Pinot Gris ferments in three types of tanks: in stainless steel tanks, large neutral oak vats and cement tanks. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to maintain acidity, and the wine is fresh and vivacious. A little residual sugar is left to give it a little sweetness and a balance with the acidity. It is an excellent partner for salmon, chicken or pork.
The winery writes "Villa Wolf Pinot Gris is made in a full-bodied, dry style with fresh, unoaked fruit and a crisp texture."
