You: 'Doctor Loosen, help me! I need a Riesling that's crisp and balanced, with delicate flavours of peach and nectarine, wrapped up in a cool mineral cloak!' Dr Loosen (producer of Villa Wolf Dry Riesling 2014: 'Sure, zis is my pleasure. Just take a sip of zis Riesling and you vill be mozt happy wiz ze results.'


This is the kind of scenario that we envisage happening and we feel it's only responsible to stock Villa Wolf Dry Riesling 2014 in case you can't find Dr. Loosen in time. Just doing our job, folks.


From the maker of Dr. Loosen, this is crisp and balanced with delicate flavours of peach and nectarine, wrapped in a cool mineral cloak.


In 1996, Ernst Loosen took on the ownership of the beautiful Villa Wolf estate. The wines are made in the classic style of the Pfalz; dry, with pure flavours and a moderate alcohol. 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. Today, talented winemakers Patrick Moellendorf and Sumi Gebauer run the winery, a role which they have taken on with great fervour. They trained under the watchful gaze of Ernst Loosen for seven years and now have complete responsibility for the vineyards and winemaking.


To preserve the naturally high quality of the vineyards, the winery emphasizes sustainable viticulture, gentle handling during harvest and traditional techniques in the cellar. This enables Patrick and Sumi to produce pure, mineral-inflected wines that express the authentic terroir of the Pfalz.


The grapes are crushed and sent straight to the tank for settling, before fermentation with neutral cultured yeasts in temperature-controlled steel tanks. This is followed by a few months on the fine lees to add a gentle creaminess to the texture and integrate the natural acidity of Riesling.


Villa Wolf Riesling is made in the traditional dry style of the Pfalz region. It is medium-bodied and has a lovely purity of peach fruit, with a classic minerally structure. Nicely balanced acidity gives it a juicy grip. It is an excellent match for classic continental-style cooking, especially with dishes that feature freshwater fish, chicken and sushi.
