A lovely, easy drinking Gewürztraminer with a lively acidity that balances the sunny sweetness.
Estate: The J.L. Wolf estate was founded in 1756 and produced highly regarded wines for more the 200 years. After a small decline in the late 20th century, it was revitalized by Ernst Loosen, of the Dr. Loosen estate in 1996. Villa Wolf is the estate’s “value-priced line of varietal wines”.
Philosophy: Ernst Loosen acquired the J.L. Wolf estate with the goal of producing “powerful, traditionally crafted Pfalz wines to compliment his lighter Dr. Loosen wines from Mosel”.
Winemaking: Sustainable viticulture is practiced, along with minimalist intervention in the production and cellar. Grapes for Villa Wolf wines are sourced from the estate along with contracted growers.
Tasting Notes: Light gold in colour with balmy aromas of spicy ginger, apple and traces of sweet herbs. Apple, peach and sweet lychee flavours harmonized with a lively acidity along with clean minerals and hints of ginger spice on the perky finish.
