If you ask what is one of the most enjoyable things in this world, I would say that it is being surprised suddenly and in an extraordinary way! I poured this Rose for a group of friends with a toast about Spring being around the corner and a perfect time for a Rosé. The response following the taste was immediate.
Delicious, fruity, sparkly, and a few “wows” thrown in.
The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé is a frizzante loaded with notes of strawberry, watermelon, and raspberry.
This dry wine is made with fruit from vineyards farmed expressly for the purpose of producing a true Rosé, called Weissherbst in German. Only perfectly ripe, healthy grapes are selected. Upon harvest the fruit is given a brief maceration to extract a lovely salmon colour from the Pinot Noir grapes. They call this their “Jolly Rancher Rose” as it exudes explosive aromas and flavours of Jolly Rancher Strawberry and Jolly Rancher Watermelon
Founded in 1756, the Villa Wolf winery was a successful and highly regarded wine estate for more than two centuries. Ernst Loosen, one of the Pfalz regions most prominent winemakers, took over the winery in 1996, launching a dramatic revival of the estate’s quality and reputation. Since 2011, the estate has been managed by a talented and dedicated young team that previously worked at Dr. Loosen.
