Founded in 1756 the J L Wolf Estate was a very successful and highly regarded winery for more than two centuries. It entered an especially glamorous era with the construction of its Italianate estate house and villa in 1843. In the latter years of the 20th century however, the estate languished lacking a firm hand to guide its wine production. In 1996, Ernst Loosen took over the vineyards, launching a dramatic turnaround in the estate's quality and reputation.
The Pfalz is a very warm and sunny region, often called “the Tuscany of Germany,” so Pinot varieties do well here. The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir has deliciously bright berry and fruit flavours and a clean finish.
There’s an attractive herby, savoury, mineral character to the nose which shows some lightly aromatic red cherry fruit. The palate has a smooth, elegant fruitiness with a hint of spice as well as a trace of earthy complexity. A light, attractive Pinot Noir of real character.
Perfect for everyday drinking, delicious served with tomato based dishes or makes a perfect partner to slow-roasted duck legs.
