Pfalz Wine

he Pfalz is a major German wine-producing region and that country’s rising star. It’s got Germany’s sunniest and driest climate, and has gone from being a region that relied on mediocre crosses to make bad, cheap wine to a place that can make superior wines. About half the wines made in the Pfalz are dry. Though the Pfalz is located about 50 miles north of Alsace’s great Riesling vineyards, it has begun producing rich, dry wines that are reminiscent of those of that region.

The area makes excellent Rieslings. The best villages for Riesling are Ruppertsberg, Diedesheim, Forst, Wachenheim, Bad Durkheim, and Kallstadt. In addition to that noble grape, the Pfalz is becoming known for Pinot Noir (Spatburgunder in German), Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Gewurztraminer, and Dornfelder. The last of these is a cross that has been making surprisingly quality wines in some places.

  • Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rose Pfalz 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The 2016 Villa Wolf displays the best facets of well-ripened Pinot Noir in rosé form. Its light watermelon and raspberry aromas are restrained and pleasant. Theres a touch of effervescence on the palate, with bold cranberry and cherry fruit and a sharp finish of mineral-rich depth. Read More

  • August Kesseler Pinot Noir Pfalz 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe berry blend of blueberry and raspberry with a fresh cherry blossom note and a hint of spice. Clean, fresh and lively palate of licorice, ripe cherry and fresh strawberry with a lot of zesty character, fun spice and just enough tannin to add a bit of texture to the mid palate so the hint of earthiness on the finish is in perfect balance.
