Average critic rating : 94.0 points



The 2015 Birkweiler Kastanienbusch Riesling trocken GG shows a very pure and complex, almost dusty and wet clay bouquet with herbal flavors. Round, piquant and very elegant on the palate, this is another Mosel-like Riesling from the Southern Pfalz. It is lean but juicy, precise, concentrated and very complex in the finish. Already accessible, but with a long and tension-filled finish, this is a very expressive Riesling with grip and character. Highly recommended.

After 2014, Hansjörg Rebholz has again bottled a great vintage. His 2015 series is outstanding and a benchmark collection. His selective harvesting has come close to perfection over the years, and even more so because it wasn't easy in 2014 nor in 2015, when the ripening of the grapes was so quick that many wines in the Pfalz lost precision and balance.

Rebholz's 2015s are below 13% alcohol and most of them are between 12-12.5% alcohol. The acidity is vital and very precise, and the wines reveal a persistent mineral structure intertwined with ripe and concentrated fruit. Sometimes you have the impression of drinking a Mosel wine with the origin of Pfalz. The outstanding wines in 2015 are the Riesling grand crus Kastanienbusch GG, Ganz Horn GG and Im Sonnenschein GG. There is just one wine even more impressive: the 2015 Gewürztraminer Auslese Albersweiler Latt. This is one of the greatest Gewürztraminers beyond Alsace.
