Leitz 2023 Magdalenenkreuz Riesling Spätlese

Further east and upstream of the Klosterlay is the Magdalenenkreuz, where Leitz farms vines 30+ years in age. The name translates to “the cross of Mary Magdalene,” named after a red sandstone cross that can be found amongst the vines. Here the soils are comprised of sandy loam—fatter and ideal for ripe expression; the riesling grown here is always textured, opulent and forward. Though the wine is of Spätlese quality it perceivably drinks more like a Kabinett.
