Leitz Dragonstone Riesling Qba 2013
Luscious yet tart peach, cherry, and rhubarb are seem suffused with salt, crushed stone, and shrimp shell savour in this bright, invigorating, irresistibly enticing and far from simple Riesling. Hints of inner mouth floral perfume and the piquancy of peach pit add further depth to what has consistently counted as among the worlds most remarkable Riesling values.

The Rheingau Region is the only point where the Rhine river flows from east to West as it encounters the Taunus mountains. For 30km it flows due west, exposing a vast south facing slope, which gets progressively steeper as it moves west. It is only the last 6km, from Rudesheim onwards, where Johannes plies his viticultural skills.
One speciality and definitively the strength of Leitz winery is the strict collection of first growth Riesling vineyards combined with low yields and highest standard vineyard management.
