Category White Wine
Region Germany, Rheingau
Brand Josef Leitz
They are a small estate of 5.8 hectares. Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. They have a remarkable reconciliation of weight, solidity and buoyancy. They tend to run stony, as is the Rheingau type-when it's true! And they are fastidiously specific in their site characteristics. The dry wines are better than most! Still, almost none of Johannes' wines taste "sweet." They have the coiled power of a tightly closed fist. They are intensely fragrant, as though they wished to convince you of something. They are like Wachau wines; they crave oxygen, and they do show their best ice cold.

Pure flavors of pear, apple and apple blossoms mark this elegant white. Backed by a bracing structure, this has a clean, refreshing finish, with fine length. Best from 2008 through 2020. 12 cases imported.
