Dr. Loosen Villa Wolf Pinot Gris 2012 is very pale gold, with rich aromas on the nose of ripe apples and pears, a touch of honey, spice and apricot but also an underlying minerality and citrussy streak. Lovely depth of fruit in the mouth giving richness and roundness without too much alcohol. To ensure quality only perfectly healthy grapes are used and production is very limited. The grapes undergo gentle cold fermentation at 16C for about 10 days and then have gentle development time in stainless steel tanks. Part of each vintage is vinified in the traditional 1,200 ltr neutral oak casks to add depth and complexity with the rest being made in stainless steel. The actual percentage that goes into oak will vary from vintage to vintage.
