Wine Review: This pale straw colored Pinot Gris from Germany is a very good value. It opens with a lime bouquet with a hint of wet stone and yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is similar to the bouquet. It features mineral infused lime flavors with notes of yellow grapefruit and white pepper. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. This Pinot Gris is a very nice summer wine. It will appeal to Sauvignon Blanc fans. I would sip it chilled on the beach and serve it with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Pinot Gris variety was first identified in the Pfalz region, and Germany is second only to Italy in acres planted. Villa Wolf Pinot Gris is made in a dry style with fresh, unoaked fruit and a crisp texture. Half of each vintage is made in large, neutral oak casks for depth and complexity. The other half is done in stainless steel to preserve freshness and enhance the vibrant fruit. It is an excellent partner for salmon, chicken or pork. These are excellent glass-pour wines, as well as great values on the retail shelf.
