Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Okonomierat Rebholz, Weisserburgunder, Trocken, 2016

Wonderfully pure and clear for such a modestly priced wine, a stainless steel tank fermented and aged Pinot Blanc that represents fantastic value by way of its purity and sheer class. Touches of kiwi, conference pear and tarragon shimmer and dance across the palate. Great refreshment.

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.
