Think of a German white wine, and Pinot Gris probably won't spring to mind. But on the evidence of this eye-opening wine from Villa Wolf, maybe it should. This is the kind of white wine which slips down effortlessly, and then you're surprised the bottle's nearly finished. Which makes it a top everyday drop.

No wishy-washy Pinot Grigio here (the same grape variety), instead you'll find bags of pear-peach character, not too ripe though, just enough to remain impressively fruity throughout.

At Villa Wolf organic practices are used in the vineyard (uncertified), and it's a wine that's suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. Perfect on its own; the locals are fond of it with asparagus too.

Gorgeously peachy from nose to finish, this vibrant, fruity Pinot Gris offers wide appeal along with a gentle price tag. Dry on the palate and refreshingly zesty, it’s an elegantly balanced sip. A touch of stony minerality lends complexity to the finish. Wine Enthusiast - 90 pts

The Producer

Ernst Loosen took over this German wine estate in 1996, having picked the Pfalz as the wine region where he'd make his dry wines. The name 'Villa Wolf' is used to label his excellent quality wines made from fruit grown outside his vineyard holdings.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

Dr Ernie Loosen is one of the big-name winemakers of the Mosel in Germany, but few people know that he also owns Villa Wolf in the more southerly Pfalz region, close to Alsace. Pinot Gris is a traditional grape of the area, and this is such a lovely example: perfumed and highly aromatic, sherbet and exotic fruit notes meet crunchy, fresh pear, then it bursts onto the palate: there is sweetness here (8.1g/l of residual sugar) as is common in Alsace examples, a very vibrant, almost spritzy-electric texture and acidity, and yet that palate-coating sweetness and ripeness of fruit making it very easy to drink or match with scallops or Asian foods.

The Region

Situated to the south-east of Frankfurt, the region produces white and red wines, contrary to the likes of the Mosel and the Rhine regions which are very much white wine country. With the region sheltered by the Haardt mountains to the west, the climate is very similar to that of its southerly neighbour Alsace, with very warm summers and very low rainfall.

Try this aromatic pork dish with its layers of complex spice with a vibrant, ripe white (not too dry) which will balanced out the heat of the curry without overshadowing the rich flavours. The off-dry Villa Wolf Pinot Gris will work just perfectly.

Fig and Blue Cheese Tart
