Leitz 2019 Rosengarten “Monopole” Grosses Gewächs

Rosengarten is one of the oldest parcels in Rüdesheim, located in the heart of the village. Nearly 10 years ago Leitz leased the vineyards surrounding the present-day ruin, the fortress of the Broemser knights, built around 1044 A.D., and has been experimenting with the wine's style ever since. As Johannes grew to understand the site, he realized that it was destined to express a great dry riesling. Today Leitz works this enclosed site which is composed of 3 parts; the “Kreuzgarten” (garden of the cross) north of the fortress, the “Bienengarten” (garden of the bees) and the main site the “Rosengarten” (garden of roses), which contains the oldest vines. The soils are mainly assembled of sandy loess-loam with quartz, giving the soil excellent water distribution.
