Leitz 'Eins Zwei Dry' Riesling 2017 (Rheingau, Germany) "...lime blossom, kumquat, apricot..."
Weingut Josef Leitz is located in Rüdesheim, at the western end of the Rheingau. As the German Wine Guide notes, “Few in the Rheingau make finer wines than Leitz.” This family estate is run by Johannes Leitz, who took over what was then a 2.6 hectare property in 1985, aged just 21, and grew it to 43 hectares. It was the Rheingau that “established Germany’s reputation for world class white wines” (Hugh Johnson) and Eins Zwei Dry is a wonderful modern ambassador for the region.
"Eins Zwei Dry is the riesling that provides an entry into the Leitz world of wine. This wine is a cross-section of various Rheingau loess and clay soils with an appealing dry character. The bouquet is characterized by a clear apple fragrance, a hint of kumquat and apricot together with a touch of lime blossom"
