Villa Wolf Pinot Noir has beautiful black cherries and blueberries, almost sultry. The taste is medium bodied with a lush taste structure and is further enriched by the subtle spicy wood influence and earthy tone. This makes an apparently tasty pinot noir a characteristic glass that can be widely used.
After the harvest, the destemmed grapes are fermented in wooden vats. Subsequently, the wine is aged for approximately 6 months in barriques (oak barrels with a capacity of 225 liters) of at least 1 year old. This way the wood has a supporting role and the refined fruitiness is preserved.
This is a very grown-up Pinot Noir for the price, and an excellent wine for everyday dining.
Villa Wolf Pinot Noir is a delicious red wine from the Pfalz area Germany. This wine is made by winery Villa Wolf (owned by Dr. Loosen) from Pinot Noir grapes.
Recommended wine serving temperature between 14°C and 17°C.
About Villa Wolf patio Founded in 1756, in the Pfalz region of Germany, the J.L. Wolf estate (now called Villa Wolf) was a successful and highly regarded winery for more than two centuries. It entered an especially glamorous era with the construction of its Italianate estate house and villa in 1843. In the latter years of the 20th century, however, the estate languished, lacking a firm hand to guide its wine production. Ernst Loosen, of the Dr. Loosen estate, took over the vineyards in 1996, launching a dramatic turnaround in the estate’s quality and reputation. Since 2011, the estate has been managed by a talented and dedicated young team that previously worked at Dr. Loosen. Sumi Gebauer and Patrick Möllendorf have brought renewed energy and focus to the viticulture and wine making at Villa Wolf. The goal at Villa Wolf is to produce wines that express the pure, authentic terroir of the Pfalz. Made in the classic style of the Pfalz, Villa Wolf Rieslings are drier and more full-bodied than Mosel Rieslings, with fully ripe fruit flavors and a characteristic stoniness in the aroma. The Pfalz region also has a long tradition with other grape varieties, allowing Ernst and his team to expand their wine making palette to include Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer and Dornfelder. To preserve the naturally high quality of the vineyards, we employ sustainable viticultural practices and emphasize gentle handling of the fruit through traditional, minimalist wine making.
