Villa Wolf Pinot Noir 2018
Villa Wolf produce excellently priced wines from estate-grown fruit, this Pinot Noir is full of cherry fruit.
Warm and light-bodied, with forward, dark cherry fruit, a firm structure and a spicy mid-palate. Six months of barrique aging gives it a smoky depth and a nice backbone of earthy tannins. A great match for lighter game dishes. Enjoy over the next couple of years.
Founded in 1756, in the Pfalz region of Germany, the J.L. Wolf estate (now called Villa Wolf) was a successful and highly regarded winery for more than two centuries. In the latter years of the 20th century, however, the estate languished, lacking a firm hand to guide its wine production. In 1996 the revered Ernst Loosen, of the Dr. Loosen estate (Mosel), took over the vineyards, launching a dramatic turnaround in the estate's quality and reputation. Villa Wolf provide excellently priced varietal wines made from estate-grown fruit.
