    The Rudesheimer trocken shows the finesse and complexity of the GG wines Leitz produces for under $20. The nose expresses elegant notes of lemon oil and orange blossom, while the palate shows notes of Meyer lemon, savory salinity, slatey minerality and bright, crisp acidity the cuts right through any fatty food and pairs perfectly with seafood. I love these wines, they represent exceptional quality dry Riesling for such a steal!

    An absolute dream for Trocken riesling lovers finding that perfect balance between aromatic intensity, textural richness, and powerful acidity. A nose of freshly crush meyer lemon - peel and all. Big notes of limestone and sea spray which all come together on the palate with great richness and focus. Beaming all the way through it never stops and delivers the goods with out seeming austere or hard edge like some other trockens. Leitz kills it all the time.

    Leitz’s 2015 Rüdesheimer Riesling Trocken ratchets things up a notch from the producer EinZweiDrei offering, but vertically, not horizontally. It is like a dingbat of a hand, with the finger pointed towards the winery’s Grand Cru sites. If it isn’t as profound, it nevertheless anticipates those wines’ texture and structure in its firmness and self-possession. While it plays its cards close to its chest, it is not harshly austere, nor domineeringly powerful, letting slyly slip honeycomb, freesia, orange peel, gravel, ginger and hard cheese rind. Even pineapple? Well, not really, and yet this one intimates more than it will ever say—and who doesn’t love a good mystery?
