18,5 Punkte 2017 IM SONNENSCHEIN Riesling GG

»Opulence can win competitions; but vibrancy wins hearts, noses and palates. The first thing that strikes you is the freshness of its fragrance - a perfect mix of local fruit and garden herbs. A little less abundant in its sweet generosity on the palate than its Rebholz siblings. It allows acidity and minerality a look-in, which makes it that little bit more interesting.« (MS)

 

18+ Punkte 2017 GANZ HORN Riesling GG

»It's an old cliché that sometimes less can be more. I find the relative delicacy of citrus and stone fruit sprinkled with a dusting of Herbes de Provence marginally preferable to some of Rebholz's more powerful Grosse Gewächse. Even in its sweetness it is a little gentler.« (MS)

 

18 Punkte 2017 KASTANIENBUSCH Riesling GG

»The 2016 earned some rave reviews from top German wine guides and the 2017 matches its predecessor in terms of generosity of luscious fruit and profound herbal expression. With such incredible extract one hardly dares ask whether it needs to be quite so sweet.« (MS)

17,5 Punkte - 2013 RIESLING vom Buntsandstein
»Since our infamous Aussie-German dry Riesling taste-off, I have learned to appreciate that the Buntsandstein takes a little longer to develop its inherent mineral intricacies. The sandstone soil adds smoky, peppery and salty notes to the ubiquitous Pfalz stone fruit character. Firm, powerful and with sound acidity to add longevity, this is not far off Grosses Gewächs quality»

17 Punkte - 2013 RIESLING vom Muschelkalk
»Still a little under the influence of spontaneous herbaceousness, the Muschelkalk of 2013 adds the tang of lime fruit to a solid salty presence. Uncompromisingly dry and with a racy acidity, but mainly minterality "ante portas"»

16 Punkte - 2013 RIESLING trocken
»Like many of its contemporary estate trocken colleagues, Rebholz´s 2013 entry-level trocken is a little more demanding than its predecessors. The fruit is firmer and crunchier, the acidity certainly authentic and the salty minerality quite pronounced.
Solid rock!»

18,5 Punkte 2012 GANZ HORN – IM SONNENSCHEIN Riesling GG
»A fresh citrus fruit aroma finds expression in a mouthwatering flavour of grapefruit and mandarin, partnered by a lip-smacking salty minerality. On the mid palate we experience a a great harmony of body, fruit and acidity, and a long finish the Ganz Horn excels with a zesty sparkle of flavours. Lively, complex and elegant, one of the greats of 2012.«
