Weingut Josef Leitz Riesling Dragonstone Rüdesheimer Drachenstein 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This offers up tons of zesty lime tinged peach fruit on a taut frame with vibrant acidity that gives the wine a lightness that belies it's richness. The finish is decidedly sweet but with a brightness and mineral cut that keeps this refreshing. 89pts

Fantastic wine - very well priced. A mineral nose, with peaches opens. Its got searing acidity, thats well balanced by a little residual sugar. Very well balanced, resulting in a lively wine. Nicely mineral, and emollient with more peaches on an extended finish. Served with a steak salad, but would pair with Quiche, salads, sandwiches / picnics or even spicy Asian foods.

Wonderfully light, bright, and smells soft of apples and pears. The sweetness isn't cloying and refreshing

I really like this wine, and think its one of the best Rieslings under $30. The '08 is already out, but the '07 is still on sale in some places. Peach syrup on the nose, with flavors of candied fruits. Well balanced, nice sugars and a crisp tart finish redolent of limes. Excellent.

Ripe aromas of stone fruits abound with good acidity and a nice finish. Try this as an apéritif or simply to cleanse your palate any time. No matter what the vintage, Leitz always expresses it.
