“one of Germany’s most exciting wine regions” Jancisrobinson.com
Enjoy six bottles of Ernst Loosen’s Villa Wolf Pinot Noir
and six bottles of Reichsrat von Buhl Riesling Trocken
in this Pfalz Collection.
The Pfalz wine region stretches from the border with Rheinhessen in the north to the
French vineyards of Alsace in the south. One of the warmest wine regions in Germany,
it’s renowned for its Pinot Noir and Riesling. Indeed, up until the end of the 19th
century, when Phylloxera wiped out so many of Europe’s vineyards, Pfalz Rieslings were
among the most highly prized and expensive wines in the world.
We’d like to share with you two superb wines from the
Pfalz region which highlight both the exceptional value and
outstanding quality to be found in the region.
Villa Wolf Pinot Noir 2017 Pfalz
Pinot Noir from the legendary Ernst Loosene
Ernst Loosen is one of Germany’s top winemakers and his
wines have won countless trophies and awards around the
world, He took over the Villa Wolf winery in 1996 and has taken
the wines to another level. Aged in French oak barrels, this is a
delightfully silky Pinot Noir with fresh, dark cherries, crushed
raspberries and a smoky depth.
Reichsrat von Buhl Riesling Trocken 2018, Pfalz
Classic dry Riesling from a historic Pfalz estate
Reichsrat von Buhl was established in 1849 and has been
ranked among Germany’s finest estates ever since. It’s long
had a reputation for its dry Rieslings and this is a fantastic
introduction. Bone dry, crisp and cool with zesty limes, crisp
green apples and a slatey, mineral backbone, it’s delicious with
shellfish or simply on its own.
