This off-dry, single vineyard Rheingau QbA from Josef Leitz is a go to Riesling here at The Bottle Shop. An off-dry Riesling with a superb balance of minerality and acid. Endless food pairings, especially with some spicy food or a medley of flavors.
"It’s almost insane how this wine keeps improving. The usual kirsch and lime flavors are now in the finest conceivable form: barely perceptibly sweet. Pointed yet creamy, salty and minty; animated and seductive and with all the density of `12.
"Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. This is the wine that once was called Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, and it’s the wine David Schildknecht said was the best Riesling value in the world, which is because Johannes sells it to us for much less than it’s worth. For a larger production wine this receives the same care in the vineyards and cellar that every Leitz wine receives."
