Josef Leitz Dragonstone Riesling 2012

Josef Leitz Dragonstone Riesling 2012

Universally regarded as one of the three rising stars of the new generation of Rheingauers (with Kunstler and Weil). They are a small estate of 5.8 hectares. Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. The soil is weathered slate. Almost none of their 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.

The usual kirsch and lime flavors are now in the finest conceivable form: barely perceptibly sweet. Pointed yet creamy, salty and minty; animated and seductive and with all the density of `12.
