Villa Wolf Pinot Blanc 2022
Medium bodied, dry style is very food friendly. On the nose there are green apples and apricots with a hint of herbs. The wine is full but dry and elegant on the palate and there is a persistent finish.
Villa Wolf Varietal Wines
The Villa Wolf varietal line-up includes classic Pfalz wines made from traditional varieties. These value-priced wines combine Villa Wolf estate grown fruit with grapes from contracted growers.
The Pfalz Region (aka 'Palatinate') 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. Wine grapes do quite well here where it is possible to achieve full ripeness in every vintage. The predominant soil type in this area is well-drained, weathered sandstone. It produces wines with a fruit-driven purity and a stony structure.
Winemaking Notes & Technical Info:-
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness for a bright, fresh style. No overripe or botrytis affected fruit is permitted in the harvest, the fruit is processed as quickly as possible to preserve freshness.
Fermentation and maturation takes place in stainless steel tanks and malolactic fermentation is avoided in order to maintain lively acidity. There is only light filtration before bottling and no other filtering or fining takes place.
About the winemakers:-
Patrick and Sumi met while working in the cellar at Dr. Loosen. Together they now manage the entire winemaking process at Villa Wolf, from vine to cellar. They share Ernst Loosen's philosophy that great wines are created on the vine, so they employ sustainable practices to foster a balanced environment in the vineyards.
