2022 Villa Wolf Pinot Gris
Villa Wolf is the Pfalz estate of Mosel Riesling legend Ernst Loosen. The Pfalz region is in the Rhine river valley in southwest Germany, directly north of France’s Alsace region. The low-lying Haardt mountains protect the area from cold, wet Atlantic weather, making it one of the warmer and drier areas of Germany.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Pear and red apple skin aromas are trailed by hints of lime, quince and wet stone. Ripe, fleshy pear and red apple fruits carry good textural volume across the palate with subtle quince, musk and wet stone characters lying underneath. Finishes dry and fresh with brisk acidity leading into a deliciously fruity aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
