"According to importer Rudi Wiest, who embarked recently on a quest for Germany's finest dry wines: "Our latest idea; uncover a new estate where the focal point would be top dry Rieslings with the hope of bringing more attention to the category. First, find a benchmark dry Riesling producer from the Pfalz, knowing the region's additional concentration and power would be a stylistic fit in the American market. Before making a final decision we would also travel to Berlin and attend the 2003 Grosses Gewächs tasting, reviewing 50+ wines. After even more tastings and a great deal of consultation with friends in Germany, it was clear Ökonomierat-Rebholz was the estate we wanted. At the helm is Hansjörg Rebholz, star pupil of the now retired Hans-Günter Schwarz of Müller-Catoir fame. Many colleagues regard Rebholz as one of the finest dry Riesling estates in Germany today. In addition Hansjörg is highly praised by both the international and German press alike, fans include Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson, Stuart Pigott, Eichelmann, Gault-Millau, and Bruce Sanderson of Wine Spectator"

3.5 stars "Fruity nose with floral notes. On the palate, dry, light-bodied with a distinctive dried apricot flavor. Lively finish."
