Leitz Eins Zwei Dry Riesling 2012
- In stock
This entry-level, as they call it, dry Riesling comes from the talented Johannes Leitz, one of the brightest sparks of the Rheingau. And I swear it wasn't just the clever name, a play on the German for 1-2-3, that appealed. Balance is all with a dry Riesling. You need to have just the right amount
of acidity to counterbalance the relatively low residual sugar. Too much and the wine tastes hard and austere. Too little - well, very few Rieslings have too little acidity in my experience. This wine is seductively open and accessible already. Unlike many more 'serious' Rieslings, it has clearly been made to be drunk in its first two or three years, but is still hugely tangy, juicy and appealing.
