    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Okonomierat Rebholz, Riesling, Kastanianbusch, Grosses Gewächs, 2018

    Floral complex and mineral aromas Reserved, deep and with a fine acid and mineral line that is threaded through the mid palate. Very complete and long and layered with complex salty red slate and tangy plum notes. Long and full, stacked with ripe phenolic grip. This will require longer than others in this range time to shed the sheer concentration you find today.

    David Schildknecht, Vinous
    Pear and mango offer a very ripe aromatic and palate impression, alluringly garlanded in iris and peony, then reinforced by the glycerol-richness that Rebholz takes to be characteristic of 2018s. Nutty piquancy and an underlying sense of wet stone serve for welcome counterpoint to the effusiveness of fruits and flowers and emerge on the finish with pith and even an unexpected hint of austerity. This bottling should be fascinating to follow.

    Okonomierat Rebholz

    A great name in German wine circles and the leading estate of the Pfalz, Okonomierat Rebholz represents the region at its most uncompromising, precise and pure. If the Pfalz is often known for producing full-bodied, fruit forward wines, Hansjorg Rebholz's wines come as a crisp pure breath of fresh air. Never chaptalising or de-acidifying, nor allowing his wines to soften through malolactic fermentation, the Rebholz style aims to be as transparent a translation of vintage and site as possible; the house style, honed now over three generations, is bone dry, crystal clear, pure and unadulterated. Possessing some of the finest vineyard sites in the Pfalz on a smorgasbord of different soils, Hansjorg and his team craft a broad range of wines. Riesling sits at the core making up 40% of the plantings, supported by some of Germany’s finest and most focussed Pinot Blancs, a concise selection of top level Spatburgunders and some truly classy, balanced Sekts. All of the dry white wines below are fermented and aged in steel, with a minimum of intervention, resting upon fine lees until bottling, which is done without fining and the lightest of filtrations. The results, naturally possessing high levels of CO2, are long, intense, pure wines that often require, and are always capable of, extended ageing.
