Pinot Gris - Villa Wolf - 2019 - Dr Ernst Loosen - Pfalz - Germany
The Somerset Wine Co
It was in the Pfalz region, back in the 19th century, that Pinot Gris was first identified as an individual variety and vinified separately. The modern-day Villa Wolf Pinot Gris has full ripe typical Pinot Gris spiciness on the nose, with a lovely lemon lift. It is medium weight, but with a full, stony impact on the palate, where it is long and satisfying with good acidity. No malolactic fermentation is allowed, so the wine retains a bright crisp citrus acidity. Attractive peach fruit. creamy texture, very slightly off-dry but crisp and refreshing. Make the change from Pinot Grigio !
Food pairing: It is an excellent partner for salmon, chicken or pork.
