Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling Dry 'Ehrenfels' 2013
The bouquet is a combination of a seductive vanilla aroma with touches of lemon, mint accents, mirabelle, mango, banana and black pepper. A subtly mingled fruity acidity makes for powerful accents on the palate. The Schlossberg is direct, tingling, invigorating and enduring. This Riesling is an excellent accompaniment to salmon and turbot with sautéed chicory, fried quail with young Savoy cabbage and curry, poussin with red pepper, roast pork with cumin, fennel and coriander.

The Castle Hill Vineyard at Rudesheim
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.
