From an estate rescued by one of Germany's leading modern winemakers, the great Ernst Loosen, Villa Wolf is a deliciously appetising Pinot Gris. From a terrific vintage, look forward to full, creamy peach fruit, fresh citrus with a hint of spice.
Germany’s Pfalz region is best known for Riesling, but it excels with other aromatic whites too, particularly in great vintages. And 2019 was exceptional, possibly "the best this century, so far" said Jancis Robinson MW. Ernst Loosen is a leading light of modern winemaking, one of the first to show that Germany could excel at crisp dry whites, a style that appeals more to modern tastes. His wines are renowned around the world. The 18th century Villa Wolf estate is one of his rescue projects and this beautifully balanced, rounded, ripely fruity and lemony fresh Pinot Gris shows his skill. Its creamy peach and bright stony freshness makes it an ideal wine with all sorts of chicken dishes, panfried fish or try it with sushi, for a nice change.
"Another German secret. Lovely wine, light fruit flavours, well worth the money"
