Rebholz Ripe Riesling

Rebholz Riesling vom Buntsandstein Spätlese trocken 2003
Pfalz, Germany

Yellow-gold colour...the vintage was HOT...so to find a wine with this cool style...minerals galore..and a trace of petroleum...some lime..steeliness..this wine reminded of the Trimbach style from Alsace....very good for the vintage and a wine I will look for again in a 'better' vintage...
Rebholz wines need time..and to stop you and I drinking TOO early..he releases them later...
Points 17.25

I have two bottles of the 2006 that I plan on holding for a long time. Thanks for the note.
