Villa Wolf Riesling Dry is a medium-bodied dry Riesling and is light buff in color. An aromatic wine with juicy, crisp fruit flavors of peach, pear, apple and some citrus. The taste is lively, juicy, soft dry, medium full, with pleasantly fresh acidity and a subtle gritty, earthy experience that gives it extra flavor structure.
This wine is made in the traditional, dry Palatinate style. Carefully harvested fruit is destemmed, gently pressed and coolly fermented in stainless steel tanks at 16°C. The fermentation is stopped to retain a very small amount of unfermented grape sugars to give the wine more tension. The wine then ages on its settled, fine yeast to build more complexity. This also gives the wine resistance to oxygen, so that it stays good longer in the bottle.
This type of wine combines wonderfully with various types of fish, especially from freshwater. For example trout, pike-perch or catfish, but also sushi and sashimi. Also very good with a chicken salad with mushrooms or asparagus. Drinking the wine becomes a party when aromatic ingredients such as lime, lemongrass, ginger, coriander and chili peppers are used.
Villa Wolf Riesling Dry is a delicious white wine from the Pfalz area Germany. This wine is made by winery Villa Wolf (owned by Dr. Loosen) from Riesling grapes.
Recommended wine serving temperature between 8°C and 12°C.
Villa Wolf was 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.
