Leitz Kirchenpfad 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 grapes for this Kabinett were harvested in the first week of October from the Rüdesheimer Kirchenpfad GROSSE LAGE. Pronounced sweet ripe fruit on the nose; pear, mango, lychee, passionfruit with light yeasty notes. The palate is off dry with concentrated tropical fruit and well embedded acidity. Due to the slightly extended fermentation you will detect the very elegant flavours of yeast easily beside the harmonious fruit.
