Historic Riesling estate – renowned winemaker
J. L. Wolf
Located in the Pfalz region of Germany, to the north of the Alsace, the J. L. Wolf estate has been recognised for producing some of the country’s best Rieslings since its establishment in 1756. Towards the end of the 20th century, the vineyard began to falter in quality; however renowned winemaker Ernst Loosen, of the Dr. Loosen estate, took over the reins and had quickly re-established Wolf as a recognisable mark of quality.
Ernst’s wines from his original estate, in the region of Mosel, are typically light, and he set about his work at J. L. Wolf with the intention to create a range of wines that were considerably more powerful, concentrating on drier, more full-bodied Rieslings. The Villa Wolf Riesling has wonderful peach and apricot flavours, while levels of balanced acidity give it an extra juicy zest.
