2012 Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Alte Reben Riesling Trocken, Weingut Leitz, Rheingau

This 2012 Roseneck is a perfect example of the laser-like precision of Josi Leitz's wines, a trait that ranks top of the qualities he aims for in his Rieslings. Beautifully fragrant, with its core of stone fruit and orange- flower lifted by a little aniseed and a salty tang.

2012 Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Alte Reben Riesling Trocken, Weingut Leitz, Rheingau
Weingut Leitz

Johannes Leitz is perhaps best known for his tiny 1.2 hectare monopole Rüdesheimer Rosengarten GG (Grosses Gewächs, i.e.Grand Cru) in the heart of the Rheingau. He’s based in Rüdesheim, a picturesque town on the bank of the Rhine river, and Rosengarten is its oldest vineyard, planted since the ninth century. Leitz has grown the concern from 2 hectares to over forty since taking over from his father in 1985, bringing international renown for the winery along the way, deservedly so.
