Why do we love it?

Sometimes you do not need to say much about a wine, as it says it all on its own, as Forster Pechstein Riesling 2015 Villa Wolf does. It is a Riesling and on top of that, Grand Cru Single Vineyard that has been aged for 5 years! If you are a fan of Riesling you have understood from the beginning what we are talking about and you have already put it in your basket!

If you love dense and complex white wines then, yes, this wine is for you. Whether you like Riesling or not, you will love this one! Villa Wolf Winery is the second winery of Ernst Loosen, who could not be satisfied with Weingut Dr. Loosen in the Mosel and so decided to conquer Pfalz, too. Pfalz borders with Alsace and has a completely different terroir and wine style from Mosel. Specifically, the Forster Pechstein vineyard is considered one of the Grand Crus of the area for centuries and gives elegant wines with very intense mineral character and concentration.

Its name means black stone that refers to the black basalt of the soil that is responsible for the intense mineral character of its wines. The special element in the Forster Pechstein Riesling 2015 is that it fermented with ambient yeasts in an old 1000 lt barrel, matured there, with its fine lees, for 12 months, and then it was simply forgotten… to be released 4 years later! During this time it managed to develop the petrol character that you love so much and to unfold its complex personality so that you do not have to wait even a day longer.

On the other hand, if you can wait, Forster Pechstein Riesling 2015 Villa Wolf will be even better! But, can you?

PAIR IT

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.
