Tasting Note:

The flagship vineyard in the Rebholz estate is also the highest in the whole of the Pfalz, and counterintuitively the one with the oldest soils. The Rotliengdes found in the Kastanianbusch basin is an ancient type of iron rich red slate found nowhere else in the Pfalz that holds heat well and produces profoundly mineral, complex wines. In 2017 it is both complex and complete, with a set of elemental, earth and slate aromas that move from gunflint, to smoke, to fine black tea, before apricot and peach come to the fore. Everything is very keenly presented on the palate, fruit and minerals in a perfectly coordinated dance, deep, taut, textural and resonant. There’s huge ageing potential here and anyone with the ability to wait will be richly rewarded.
