REBHOLZ 13 RIESLING ESTATE TROCKEN (DRY) Ökonomierat Rebholz, PFALZ, GERMANY

CERTIFIED ORGANIC

JANCIS ROBINSON
Like many of its contemporary estate trocken colleagues, Rebholz’s 2013 entry-level trocken is a little more demanding than its predecessors. The fruit is firmer and crunchier, the acidity certainly authentic and the salty minerality quite pronounced. Solid rock! (MS) (4/2014)

*** Certified organic since 2009. Hansjorg Rebholz grows his Riesling in vineyards of primarily red sandstone and ages it in steel. Ripeness levels are 90+ degrees, well into Spatlese quality with about 7g of acid; but this is a completely dry wine. Fruit comes from all of his top vineyards; there are no “lesser sites” designated for the estate blend. The wine is undeniably salty, with a lean, bright, precise character, rich in body yet tensile and graceful on the tongue. Yellow fruits play hide and seek on the palate, capped by a sort of gin & tonic quality in the tail—-but ultimately, this is about stones and vineyard character. One of the great dry estate wines (gutsweins) of Germany—-and a benchmark for the style.
