Dr. Loosen Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling produced by Loosen on this slatey vineyard. A little off-dry, dusky crystalline fruit is balanced well with fine acidity and texture.
Made from grapes grown on the legendary, precipitously steep, Würzgarten (Spice Garden) vineyard in the village of Ürzig where almost all the work must be done by hand. A light-bodied, but very concentrated wine that’s brilliantly fruity with a spicy, mineral character.
It was here 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 is made in a full-bodied, dry style with fresh, unoaked fruit and a crisp texture.
Villa Wolf Pinot Noir is warm and medium-bodied, with a firm acid structure. Its dark cherry fruit is juicy, ripe and forward, with a spicy mid-palate. Twelve months of barrique aging gives the wine a smoky depth and a nice touch of earthy tannins. This is a very grown-up Pinot Noir for the price, and an excellent wine for everyday dining.
