2015 Ökonomierat Rebholz Pinot Blanc Pfalz

SKU #1274178 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Weisser Burgunder Trocken is clear, pure and fresh on the nose, quite mineral and a bit flinty. On the palate, this is a juicy-piquant and grippy Pinot Blanc; it has a round and juicy palate with a grippy finish. Enormously attractive in its ripeness, intensity and grippy raciness. (SR)  (8/2016)

K&L Notes

Quiet, focused, precise, and passionate. These words describe Hanjörg Rebholz and his wines perfectly. He reminds us a lot of Franconian vintner Paul Fürst, and both men are revered highly by winemaking colleagues throughout Germany. Each has a self assured presence, and please don't waste your breath telling them Germany can't make dry wine. In fact, in Germany, Fürst and Rebholz are regarded as two of Germany's greatest dry wine estates. They are masters within their respective regions. This wine shows earthy minerals, aromas of ash and spiced melon. On the palate the wine has an oily texture with dominant nutty melon and mineral spice.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Blanc

- Also known as Pinot Bianco in Italy and Weissburgunder in Germany and Austria, Pinot Blanc is thought to be a mutation of Pinot Gris (which is said to be a lighter mutation of Pinot Noir). While the varietal's roots are Burgundian (it was frequently confused with Chardonnay throughout history) it is rare there these days, instead finding its best iterations in France's Alsace, Germany's Pfalz and Baden, Austria's Wachau and in Italy's Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto, Friuli and Lombardy winegrowing regions. It produces full-bodied whites with relatively high acidity, yeasty citrus and appley aromas and flavors and hints of spice. Aged Pinot Blancs take on lovely honeyed tones.
Country:

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
