2007 Ökonomierat Rebholz Vom Rotliegenden Riesling Spätlese Trocken (Dry)
*Editors' Choice* This wine boasts enchanting aromas of peaches and honey, wrapped in a floral gauze. It’s riper and rounder than the Vom Bundtsandstein bottling, yet also more savory and minerally at the same time. Finishes with almost meaty, brothy, umami-like elements that linger.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the original, core site of Kastanienbusch, Rebholz's 2007 Riesling Spatlese trocken Vom Rotliegenden is loaded with sappy, luscious ripe peach, orange, and grapefruit wreathed in smoke and fine herbs. Pungency of citrus oil and herbs inform a concentrated, palpably high-extract palate that retains lift, never strays into bitterness, and finishes long on irresistible refreshment, even as it is fascinating in its transparency to savory, seemingly mineral nuances and tactile sense of smoky pungency. This should be worth following for at least 6-8 years.
