Leitz Eins Zwei Dry Riesling (750ml)
The Leitz family has a history in winemaking as far back as 1744. In 1985 Johannes Leitz took over the family winery in Rudesheim and has grown the estate from 2.9 hectares to 40 hectares and has gained national and international recognition for his wines all while staying true to his root. He worked closely with the Ministry of Environment to restore traditional terraces above Rudesheim in the Berg Rottland and Berg Kaisersteinfels vineyards. The impressively steep Leitz vineyards are blessed with 100% southern exposure, thus ensuring optimal ripening and good drainage which is needed for these complex and mineral driven wines.
The bouquet is characterized by a clear apple fragrance, a hint of kumquat and apricot together with a touch of lime blossom. On the palate the mature fruity acidity emerges, which lends the wine a powerful boldness, allowing it to culminate in a smooth, succulent finale.
