Peaches, honeysuckle, summer. This wine smells and tastes great. Riesling that's more on the sweet side but goes down easy with a slightly acidic finish. Great value wine!

External Reviews for Rüdesheimer Klosterlay Riesling Kabinett Leitz
Bright and refreshing , this light-bodied white shows grapefruit, apple and spice flavors. The vibrant structure drives the long finish. Drink now through 2015.
A whiff of almond gives way to tangy lime, grapefruit and peach flavors in this rich, yet focused Riesling. Picks up a creamy vanilla note on the finish, which lingers nicely. Drink now through 2012.
This Riesling is chiseled just right with minerals, mint leaf, and peaches on the palate. Tangy and just delightfully fresh.
An exceptionally aromatic wine with a full flavor and perfect balance. It is easy to see why Johannes Leitz is considered one of the rising stars of the Rheingau.
Named for its source, the Rudesheimer Drachenstein, Leitz's entry-level wine is a perennial favorite. Unfortunately, the price has crept up over the past few vintages to the point that it is no longer the screaming bargain it once was, but it is still a lovely wine, with citrusy, bergamot flavors and riper hints of apple. Long, clean and refreshing on the finish.
The aroma of this wine is taut and austere with grapefruit pith and almond, yet this bursts with sweetly ripe peach and orange flavors. "Dragonstone" refers to the vineyard Rüdesheimer Drachenstein.
This contrasts crisp, cool fruit flavors with the earthy, broadly aromatic profile typical of the Rheingau. It's focused and cleanly defined, and as one taster said, "it overdelivers for the category," showing an unusual sophistication for an entry-level wine.
Smells of cherry cider laced with orange peel and mulling spices. The palate impression is as frisky bright and dynamic as both the vintage and preceding editions of this wine would lead one to expect. Apple cherry lime and orange all inform a scintillatingly bright sizzlingly spicy and unabashedly sweet finish. This little study in fruit saturation and vim and vigor.
