Josef Leitz Riesling Dragonstone 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Universally regarded as one of the three rising stars of the new generation of Rheingauers. Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. They have the lusty vitality of wines that were never racked; he bottles them off the gross lees from the casks in which they fermented. They tend to run stony, as is the Rheingau type—when it’s true! And they are fastidiously specific in their site characteristics. The dry wines are better than most! Still, almost none of Johannes’ wines taste “sweet.” They are, to my way of thinking, the most exciting wines currently made in the Rheingau.www.skurnikwines.com
