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

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

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.

This Riesling is chiseled just right with minerals, mint leaf, and peaches on the palate. Tangy and just delightfully fresh.

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.
