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 2021 Pinot Noir Rosé

This direct-to-press rosé is made from 100% destemmed pinot noir. The grapes macerate for three hours before they are pressed. Afterward, the juice is transferred to stainless steel where it undergoes a long, cool alcoholic fermentation. This wine exudes cool, fresh fruit and lean minerality at a super-friendly price.
