Region: Pfalz, Germany
The idea of the Rebholz type came to life in the mind of the trained forester Eduard Rebholz who took over his parents' viticulture after the second world war. He took offence at the taste of wine of those years. He countered the completely denatured, artificially sweetened wines of his time with his idea of natural wine.
For the Riesling fans looking for something that differs from the typical green fruit, the Pfalz is one of the warmer Riesling growing regions in Germany. The warmer climate lends aromas of peach and apricot rather than green fruit but it still has that racing acidity we know and love about dry Rieslings
