The Pfalz region of Germany is in the south, and is a bit warmer than the Mosel - hence the region tends to push out richer, riper wine styles. The wine is certainly a fleshier style of PG, with aromas of nashi pears, red apples and ginger spice on the nose. The palate is more medium-bodied and relatively dry, with ripe fruit flavours, bright acidity, and a plush, bright finish. Would be great with a fisherman's basket.
It was here in the Pfalz region, back in the 19th century, that Pinot Gris was first identified as an individual variety and vinified separately. The modern-day Villa Wolf Pinot Gris is made in a full-bodied, dry style with fresh, un-oaked fruit and a crisp texture. It is an excellent partner for salmon, chicken or pork.
