A more than great, and also organic, Riesling from a top winery from the German Pfalz wine region. The well-known region where the most hours of sunshine in Germany are measured each year and the temperature is quite high for German standards. Winery Okononierat Rebholz has the most vineyards along the Haardtrand (part between Pfälzer Wald and Rheinebene) located on the west. However, there are also south-facing vineyards, such as the vineyard side "im Sonnenschein" where this Riesling comes from. This vineyard is located at an altitude between 160 and 225 m and has a gradient of 5 to 20%. The vineyard has a soil of colorful sandstone. Geologically, the soil is still quite young. It developed about 1 million years ago. The Queich, a small river, has transported huge amounts of gravel from the Pfälzer Wald, which settled along the slopes. This soil consists of sand and sandstone from the colorful sandstone of Pfälzer Wald, loam and gravel. It is a perfect base for Riesling.

Welcome to the Moselle of the Palatinate! - this is how James Suckling begins his review of this fine Okonomierat Rebholz Riesling Schwäwer Grosses Gewachs. In this wine, the floral lightness of the Moselle is combined with the generosity and juiciness of the Palatinate. Such a nice balance that this is a fantastic wine. Power and such a long finish that is so playful and captivating with fruit as well as wet stone and pebble. This wine is certified organic.

Very suitable as an aperitif. Excellent combination with dishes with oysters, lobster, sea fish, sole and turbot. Also beautiful with turkey and Bresse chicken with mushrooms, sushi and sashimi.
