Rebholz – Biodynamic brilliance from the Pfalz’s flagship estate…

Germany’s dry wines have arguably never been better – and the secret is out of the bag; the thirst for the top examples here in the UK is in exponential growth. Aided by warmer growing seasons and enhanced farming techniques, top German winemakers are setting out to make great dry wines, from bud to bottle, and the resulting wines have better balance, better definition and greater site specificity than ever before. The wines of the Rebholz family are proof positive of this trend and justly regarded as some of the finest in all of Germany, let alone just the Pfalz.

If the Pfalz is often regarded as a source of full bodied if slightly cumbersome wines, the Rebholz output is anything but. These are as pure and as dry as it gets, fashioned from a patchwork of diverse soil types, from red slate to sandstone to shell limestone. Often bottled at less than 2 grams of residual sugar, these are genuinely dry wines, aged only in steel, farmed Biodynamically with the utmost respect for their soils. They age brilliantly. Riesling reigns supreme, but this is also a source of some of the world’s finest Pinot Blancs; older bottles of Sonnenshein can be utterly thrilling.

Discover more on 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.
