2018 Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz Kastanienbusch GG: Kastanienbusch is one of three GG Riesling that Rebholz produces. This vineyard is a red slate site. One of the best rieslings on planet earth. This will early live for 20 years in the cellar, but is a joy to drink now. Tight on the nose and does keep unraveling with time in the glass. Citrus fruits add layers with lemon sherbet, smoke mineral and a wonderful herbal edge. The palate is ultra layered. Spice, nut, smoke with incredible salty minerality. Driver and persistence and a really hallmark. It oozes with class and sophistication.

2018 Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz Im Sonnenschein GG: Im Sonnenschein is one of three GG Riesling that Rebholz produces. This vineyard is a limestone site. Tightly focused and very impress wine right from the outset, but it does continue to unfold with time in the glass. Mineral charged and outstanding depth and detail. Ripe stone fruits with lemon sherbet and spice. The palate is fine tuned and silky. Showing a lot of depth and class. Truly remarkable.

2018 Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz Ganz Horn GG: Ganz Horn is one of three GG Riesling that Rebholz produces. This vineyard is a sandstone site. Beautiful and expressive even at the young age. Ripe citrus of orange and tangerine jump from the glass. There’s a wonderful salty mineral character that is very present. Bright spice that looks like freshly grated ginger. The palate has wonderful texture, a hallmark of their wines. The fruit is ripe citrus with a slight tropical edge on the palate. Incredible drive and persistence on the palate. Outstanding wine.

Producer Profile

Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz

Hansjörg and Birgit Rebholz are now the custodians of this 3rd generation winery in the southern Pfalz, about 30 minutes from the French border and the Alsace wine region. They were once an insider’s wine, but now have a cult following worldwide.

Hansjörg Rebholz: For more than 50 years, we've been making wines containing only what nature intended for them.

We are certified biodynamic. Part of the VDP. Hansjörg Rebholz was Winemaker of the Year 2013 (Falstaff) and Winemaker of the Year 2002 (Gault Millau).
