Very attractive white peach and citrus aromas. Juicy and elegant with spot-on balance and a long, almost silky finish. An ideal dry Riesling for everyday drinking! Best now or in 2018.
Leitz has found a formula for his dry estate wine that makes me forgive its corny title. With its successful combination of catchy name, fresh fruit, moderate acidity and ample body it serves to raise the profile of dry German Riesling and that has to be a good thing. 15.5/20 points. (MS)
Ripe pear and peach are mingled with zesty lime and orange on the nose and generously juicy palate in a concentrated and effusive but less than 12% alcohol expression of Rheingau Riesling. Hints of stone and resin add interest to a delightfully buoyant, animatingly-sustained finish. This bottling continues to rely substantially on a parcel in the top-notch Geisenheimer Rothenberg Einzellage, but now also incorporates fruit from Oestrich, Winkel, Hattenheim and Erbach. (DS)
Tangy, lean and fresh, this practically sparkles with mineral tones, a tonic-and-lime without the sweetness or bubbles. But that sounds austere, and this wine isn’t: It has enough extract to give it body, a roundness that would complement a coconut-milk fish curry.
