That's an excellent wheel - although you could get an Ultegra hub for about half of that DT Swiss... the rim is exactly what I was going to recommend.

Excel Sports has a custom wheel builder app - this is fun to play with and you could recreate exactly that wheel and play around with substitutions. It's intended for them to do the build but it would get you the proper spoke lengths and such to build yourself.

Excel Sports - Custom Wheel Builder - I think you could knock $150 off the price you got from Wheelbuilder.

Also, make sure you get the right hub for the drive train you're using... 11sp?

And DT does make some 36 rims designed for loaded touring if you want to go even stronger...
