These are Rieslings for lovers of acid. Dry, powerful, complex. These are the vinous equivalent of Warhead lollies and will appeal only to the purists. Cult wines for people who have grown tired of wines that don't kick you over with their brilliance.

Here are the things that make Hansjorg Rebholz better than almost everyone else in German winemaking: He farms biodynamically; he never chaptalises or de-acidifies (did we mention he loves acid?); and all his Rieslings are fermented in stainless steel because he this leads to the greatest purity, clarity and precision.

The 2018 Trocken Riesling is a textured, layered, complex wine from the Pfalz region just over the mountains from Alsace in southern Germany. It's the entry point of his range but it is anything but entry level. White stone fruits are lined up with lime and grapefruit characters to make for an killer nose. The palate is sleek and racy. Fine long acidity provides a backdrop for mouth-filling fruit intensity.

FAQ

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
