Wine Review: This enjoyable Pinot Gris is a pale straw colored and has a very fragrant bouquet that includes pear, nectarine and pineapple aromas, along with hints of white florals and lime zest. On the palate, this wine is bright and smooth with a nice textured mouthfeel. It is medium bodied and has nicely balanced acidity. There are flavors of green apple, pineapple and stony minerality, along with some grapefruit, saline and nice spice notes. The spice lingers for quite a while in the finish. This is a versatile Pinot Gris that would pair with linguini with clams. – Mark

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 full-bodied, 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.
