2020 Villa Wolf Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir has a long tradition in the Pfalz region, where it is known as Spätburgunder. The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir is warm and medium-bodied, with a firm acid structure. Its bright black-cherry fruit is juicy, ripe, and forward, with a spicy midpalate and lingering finish. A minimum of twelve months of aging in used French oak barriques gives the wine a smoky depth and a nice touch of earthy tannins. It’s an excellent, approachable red wine for everyday dining.
100% de-stemmed. Cold maceration before fermentation. Cool fermentation (18–20°C) in stainless steel. Half of the cuvée is matured for 15-18 months in barriques (30% new) to add depth and complexity; half in stainless steel to preserve freshness.
