Rheingau | Rüdesheim

Under the direction of Josi Leitz, Weingut Josef Leitz has earned the reputation of being one of Rheingau’s top growers and moreover, one of the finest producers in Germany. Since taking over his family estate in 1985, he has grown his holdings from 2.6 hectares to over 40, most of which are Grand Cru sites on the slopes of the Rüdesheimer Berg. Once the home of some of the world’s most sought after and expensive wines, the region fell to mediocrity in the years following the Second World War. Josi has made it his life’s work to reclaim the intrinsic quality of his native terroir and introduce the world to the true potential of the Rheingau.

Leitz 2013 Roseneck Riesling Spätlese Grosse Lage

This is the fruity expression of the Roseneck vineyard. Crisp, cayenne and cut are just a few ways to describe this Spätlese. It is focused and feminine. Tasting the Katerloch GG and the Roseneck Spätlese side by side exemplifies why Johannes Leitz is one the greatest winemakers in Germany; it takes a deft hand to create two very different, yet equally compelling, vinous expressions of the same terroir.
