Why do we love it?

We do not know about you, but we definitely love Riesling. Very much. So, when we tried Forster Pechstein Riesling 2012 from Villa Wolf, tears of emotion began to roll in our eyes. Finesse, concentration, petrol aromas and the magical mineral character of the variety, and terroir, kick in in every sip. If you are a fan of the variety then you know exactly what we ‘re talking about, and possibly you have already placed it in your basket.

If you are a passionate winelover, the following information will make you roll over for this Riesling.

Villa Wolf Winery is the second winery of Ernst Loosen, who couldn’t settle with only Dr. Loosen Winery at Mosel. This remarkable guy after his deafening success at Mosel decided to conquer Phalz too. Phalz borders with Alsace and has a completely different terroir and style from Mosel. Specifically, the Forster Pechstein vineyard is considered one of the region's grand crus for centuries and gives wines with very intense mineral character and elegance. Also, its name means black tar that refers to the black basalt of the soil responsible for the intense mineral character in the wine. The special feature at Forster Pechstein Riesling 2012 is that it fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak barrel (1000lt) and remained with the lees for 12 months and then it just was forgotten ...

And it is released this year ready to offer all the grace and sophistication of Riesling without waiting! If you do have patience though, this wine will reward you!

PAIR IT

Combine it with grilled fish, oily fish, seafood, chicken dishes.

Grilled sea bass with spicy soy sauce

  • 2 seabasses (500 grams each), with guts and scales removed
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • a handful of fresh herbs (rosemary, oregano)
  • 2 lemons or 1 orange
  • 10 g of fresh ginger in thin slices
  • Extra slices of lemon or lime for serving
  •  For the sauce
  • 2 tbsps. of olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 fresh hot pepper, in thin slices (depends on your preferences)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. of sugar

Preheat your barbecue or light the charcoal. Gut the fish, remove the scales, and wipe it well. Make 3-4 vertical, to the bone incisions on each side of the fish. Brush the fish, in and out, with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, in and out. Put in the fish's belly some fresh herbs and slices of lemon or orange. Put slices of ginger in the incisions you made earlier.

Place the fish in a baking pan. After the bbq is ready or after the grill has warmed up well, bake for 5-7 minutes and then turn it on the other side for another 5 minutes.

For the sauce, place a small saucepan on medium to high heat. Add the olive oil and when it's heated up, add the garlic and the chili peppers. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and sugar and allow to boil for 1 minute.

 Pour the sauce over the fish and serve with slices of lemon.
