Villa Wolf Gewurztraminer 2016/17
Another classy example from the Villa Wolf estate in the Pfalz, this is very delicate Gewurztraminer, light in body and alcohol. The lovely floral aroma is true to the variety, with classic rose petal and lychees, without being heavy or over the top-clean, crisp and elegantly poised with a delightfully delicate crackle on the palate. The mouth-filling mid palate fades gently to a zippy fresh finish. Good with slightly spicy oriental cuisine.

"Ernst Loosen took over the historic J.L. Wolf estate so that he could make traditionally crafted Rhine wines to complement the light and elegant Dr. Loosen Rieslings he produces in the Mosel region. In the classic style of the Pfalz, these wines are more full-bodied than Mosel wines, with higher alcohol and pure flavors of ripe fruit and stone.
The Pfalz region lies between the Haardt Mountains and the Rhine River, directly north of France’s Alsace region. As in Alsace, the mountains protect the area from harsh Atlantic weather, making it one of the warmer and drier areas of Germany. In this climate, achieving full ripeness is possible in nearly every vintage.
