Rheingau Riesling

Weingut Josef Leitz

Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Katerloch Riesling 2016

The „Cat-hole Riesling“. I am a fan of Leitz. His prices for GG‘s are great. Herbaceous and tight needs time. Tart, sour apricot, lime. elderberry flowers focused and precise a classic Rheingau. A world class wine for a very reasonable price. And yes exotic that is just the way the Riesling grape is - I have a vine in my front yard. @ the Meritage in Encinitas. — 5 days ago

Domdechaney Riesling 2011

Great example of German Riesling Auslese. A bit more developed than expected due to small bottle. Aromas of dry herbs, especially sage, honey, dried apricot, baked apple. Great acidity to balance the sweetness. Body is round and smooth, some hazelnuts and butter in the aftertaste — 16 days ago

Rudesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Terrassen Riesling 2015

Tangerines 🍊 light on its feet not oily at all faint plum touch herbs perfectly balanced. Jancis Robinson trashed it but I think it is really good for early drinking and relative inexpensive. At the meritage in Encinitas. — 13 days ago

Geheimrat J Rheingau Spätlese Trocken Riesling 2012

Very nice rich but dry Rheingau Riesling. Initial nose had a ton of petrol that faded a bit and was left with austere white fruit. Very well balanced and a very nice acid mineral finish with a bit of salinity. — 19 days ago
