Villa Wolf Wachenheimer Dry Riesling 2015/16
The village of Wachenheim lies at the centre of the Pfalz. The well-drained weathered sandstone soils produce pure, fruit driven wines with a distinctive stony character. As with "village" bottlings from Burgundy this wine is labelled only with the village name. Excellent richness and solid structure make this full and surprisingly powerful. It has good length, with a crisp, dry finish.

"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.
