Legendary German winemaker, Ernst Loosen, is a very safe pair of hands in the world of German wine. He's built a portfolio of world-beating wines over the decades so when you see his name on a bottle, it's always worth dipping in. Gewurztraminer is a variety that can split opinion with its full-on aromas and flavour and high alcohol. But under Ernst's direction, winemaker Bernard Schug has managed to pull that right back here to make a very approachable wine at a moderate alcohol without losing an inch of varietal character.
"The exotic fruit aromas of the Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer are unique. Beginners as well as experts can appreciate this wine in its complexity and depth. Combined with spicy dishes this wine is absolutely the right choice, as it has this nice balance of strong aromatics, fruitiness and acidity." - Bernhard Schug, Winemaker.
