winemaker Josi Leitz
On Thursday winemaker Josi Leitz from the region Rheingau was in town to present his 2011s, again it proved that 2011 is a great, great vintage. Everything is on the right place, impressive harmony, perfect play between fruit&ripe acidity and BIG drinking pleasure. Of course we have not the high acidity like last year.
2011 Eins-Zwei-Drei Riesling trocken
According to Josi the best "Eins-Zwei-Drei" he has ever produced. No winemaker poetic I believe him. Fresh, tangy with 12,5%.
2011 Rüdesheimer Riesling trocken
Stunning quality for 13 Euro. Shows harmony and quite crisp acidity. Good length. 88/100
2011 Magic Mountain Riesling trocken
Lovely perfume. Juicy with a dense fruit and in general with more fruit than the previous wine. Fine
2011 Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling trocken
Closed and difficult to taste.
2011 Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling trocken
It´s a killer! Outstanding structure and such subtle. Lovely ripe acidity, bombastic minerality, length with no end and again this stunning harmony. WOW 93+/100
2011 Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling trocken
Very sublime with great finesse and quite tender at the moment. Almost like a Mosel Riesling based on its schist soil
2011 Rüdesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling trocken
Based on 80 years old vines and 12g RS. Perfect harmony with a subtle minerality in the background. Subtle play between fruit and acidity. 92/100
2011 Rüdesheimer Kirchenpfad Kabinett feinherb
Perfect food-wine especially to spicy kitchen. Real crowd-pleaser! YUM YUM 89/100
