Rebholz’s Kastienbusch GG 2016 – pure class.
20 August 2019

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 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.

Today we offer their flagship dry Riesling, the great Kastanienbusch Grosses Gewachs from the charming 2016 vintage. Kastanienbusch, named after the chestnut trees that grow locally, is the highest vineyard in the Pfalz and also the one with the oldest soils; a consequence of the Rhine rift around Birkweiler, Albersweiler and Frankweiler which propelled ancient material to the surface. In Kastanienbusch one finds Rotliegendes, an ancient type of iron rich red slate found nowhere else in the Pfalz. It retains heat and produces profoundly mineral, complex wines. The Rebholz family are fortunate to own a sizeable two hectares in the upper part of the vineyard, where the exposition is perfectly south. From these two hectares they select only the best fruit to go in to their Grosses Gewachs bottling, one that is routinely lauded as one of the finest in Germany.    Read More
