Clear, pure, deep and elegant, this wine has the smokehouse and sweet marjoram flavors that you can also pick up in the Riesling of this cru. The 2014 Im Sonnenschein Weisser Burgunder GG is a very elegant, juicy and aromatic Pinot Blanc with a nice juiciness, fruit intensity and a long, salty finish. The wine has more power and is richer and creamy at this early stage than the sibling from the Mandelberg, showing more tannins; it should be aged for at least another five years. If there is a Pinot Blanc in the Rebholz portfolio that could eventually gain more complexity in a Stück or Doppelstück vat, it would be the Im Sonnenschein GG. (SR)
Pinot Blanc tends not to be the most fragrant variety at the best of times, and Rebholz’ Im Sonnenschein exercises this restraint perfectly by offering just glimpses of green fruit, herbs and a tad of smoky minerality on the nose. Thus it’s not the delicate notes of melon and pear which call the tune on the palate, but the pure expression of minerality in its salty and stony nuances. Acidity shows presence without domination, the curves of the body are ample but not plump. (MS)
