Food Pairings for J. L. Wolf Riesling
The Pfalz region lies between the Haardt Mountains and the Rhine River, directly north of France’s Alsace region. As in Alsace, the mountains protect the region from the cold, wet Atlantic weather, making it one of the warmer and drier areas of Germany. The village of Wachenheim lies at the center of the esteemed “Mittelhaardt” area, which historically has been the source of the region’s finest wines. Here, the well-drained, weathered sandstone soils produce pure, fruit-driven wines with a distinctive stony character. This wine comes from vineyards that reflect the unique characteristicsof the sandy loam soil and warm, dry climate in the village of Wachenheim. As a “village vineyard” Riesling from J.L. Wolf, it is labeled only with the village name, as with “villages” bottlings from Burgundy. It is an excellent value in full-flavored, balanced Pfalz Riesling.
