Johannes Leitz – 7/02/2012

Once you get into the single vineyard wines, you start to see the quality of the vines and the subtle difference between each soil type and exposition.

Berg Roseneck Riesling 2010
A fascinating hint of beeswax on the nose, something I’ve never seen before.

Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling 2010
An interesting white meat complexity, and the Schlossberg had a white berry character.

Berg Rottland Riesling 2010
A darker almost earthy mineral texture, more concentration yet slightly harsher acids.

The wines all had a certain richness from balanced residual sugar, and great depth of flavour. Johannes Leitz is getting the most out of his vineyards, that is for sure.
