Say Yes to the Lip-Smacking Rebholz Rosé


The 2013 Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz, Spatburgunder Rosé, Trocken, Pfalz is a rather different wine from the 2013 Weingut Meyer-Näkel, Spatburgunder Rose, Ahr.  Instead of substantive fruit, it has dry, cherry fruit with a citrus hint.  This ties in well with the beautifully tense acidity which is for me, a hallmark of German wine.  At this price you could consider it a rosé to drink over the week or a special wine for the weekend.  Either way, add this to your list of wines to try.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2013 Weingut Ökonomierat Rebholz, Spatburgunder Rosé, Trocken, Pfalz – $27
Imported by Rudi Wiest.  This wine is 100% organic Spatburgunder sourced from limestone soils.  The free-run juice fermented in stainless steel.  Alcohol 11.5%.  The color was  a light to medium intensity of copper and dried rose petals.  There were delicate aromas of ripe florals.  In the mouth were dry, cherry flavors, a lemon hint, and tense acidity.  The acidity continued on the front sides of the tongue before the wine eventually rounded out.  There was a pleasing chalky note perhaps influenced by the limestone soils, before the attractive, lip-smacking finish.  *** Now-2016.
