About This Item
Overview:In the northern Pfalz, in Wachenheim, on the edge of the Mittelhaardt, you will find our traditional winery, whose roots go back deep into the history of Palatinate viticulture. When Ernst Loosen took over the winery in 1996, it already had an eventful, almost 250-year history behind it. But it was the prospect of producing great, dry wines that attracted him to the Pfalz region. We believe that Villa Wolf offers the best conditions for this. The famous sites in Forst and Wachenheim produce wines with exceptional elegance and minerality.
Estate grown fruit supplemented with grapes from contracted growers in the Pfalz region. Located along the Rhine River Valley in southwest Germany, the low-lying Haardt Mountains help protect the are from the cold, wet weather. This means the grapes experience warmer temperatures and faster ripening periods. All fruit was farmed under sustainable practices, which follow the strict German environmental regulations. No fruit was infected with either excessive ripeness or botrytis. The grapes have been fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is avoided in order to maintain acidity. Light filtration before bottling occurs, those the wines are bottled within fining.
Tasting Notes:Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer is clear, fruity and wonderfully light. It shows the aromatic charm of the grape with a delicious juicy texture and a delicate aroma of spices, exotic fruits and fresh roses. To maintain a lively balance in the wine, the fruit is harvested when it is perfectly ripe but not overripe.
Pairing: Perfect as an aperitif or accompaniment to delicate spiced foods.
