Tasting Notes

Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg

2016 - Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling GG
A power maschine but still calm, great slate minerality in the nose with a lot of citrus, mandarins and grapefruit notes but also slight stonefruit like mirabelle, on the palate greatly balanced, with amazing potential. Love it! 

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling Beerenauslese
Everything you can expect from a true BA - Johannes Leitz managed to put it in the bottle. Deep and complex nose of spicy minerality and a powerful fruit basket of dates, exotic fruits, yellow apples, but also stone fruits and raisins. On the palate and exiting gentle wine. Gentle from its smooth and fresh acidity, exiting from the crazy spices and herbal notes. Wicked. Finishes forever... 

2006 - Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese
We have the rare opportunity to taste a #2006 #weingutleitz #leitz #rüdesheimer #schlossberg #bergschlossberg #riesling #spätlese... In the nose great aging with honey, raisins and caramelized figs, great mineral basis. On the palate caramelized stone fruit, slight watermelon, grapefruit peel, spicy minerals. Finishes sweet and spicy. Delicious! 

Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling GG
Amazing acidity carries this wine, based on minerality that gives also the spicy notes, in the nose stones, plums and herbal elements, on the palate great crisp acidity, stone fruit and exotic fruit elements, great spices, long lasting minerality.

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Auslese
It is brilliant, clear and just a dream. In the nose with exotic fruits, raspberry, mango, apple blossom, light herbal notes, on the palate crazy good mineralization of slate, quartzite and loess elements, fruit notes of passion fruit and stone fruits that seem to stay forever, beautiful and clear acidity. 

2008 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Magnum
This one is so much fun! Perfectly aged, greatly balanced! In the nose beautiful Rheingau slate minerality, beautiful aging notes of honey and raisins, stone fruits of plums and cherry, mango and sweet pineapple, on the palate soooo smooth, powerful minerality, honey, herbs and spicy finish.  

2005 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Auslese
It has aged beautifully. Caramel in the nose together with mango and pineapple, same wicked mineralization, everlasting balance on the palate of juicy acidity, smooth minerals and stone fruit. Wicked! 

2002 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Spätlese trocken
We were very happy to get a bottle of this fantastic #riesling from @Johannes Leitz as it is truly a bomb. Very powerful, very dense, very complex, greatly aged. The nose is filled with spicy minerality, ripe pineapple and mango, lots of roasted caramel and vanilla, wood and smoky, mandarin peel. On the palate unbelievably deep and powerful, racy and crisp acidity, roasted notes again, very creamy texture. The finish is just long, long, long. An unbelievable feeling in the mouth – like you have tasted a hundred things at the same time. Thanks Johannes for sharing this fantastic feeling with us! 

Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling GG
Greatly balanced 2015 with nice and quarzite minerality, citrus and grapefruit, juicy and full-bodied. Fresh and powerful minerals and acidity. Salty finish. Amazing!

2005 - Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling GG
The 2005 shows how fantasticly these wines age. It is milder in the nose with additional honey and plum, crazy herbs in the nose, acidity still very present together with the typical minerality, less citrus, instead more spicy notes, smoky on the palate, long stony finish. Wicked! 

Rüdesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling GG
The 2015 has a great minerality with citrus and grapefruit in the nose, in the palate a nice acidity that stays very long, citrus flavors, black currant, bit of nut. 

2010 - Rüdesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling GG
The 2010 has a balanced and fruity nose with exotic elements like mango and pineapple, on the palate also citrus, green apples and black currant, great acidity and minerals, very harmonious. Aging makes this wine even more brilliant.

Rüdesheimer Drachenstein

2010 - Rüdesheimer Drachenstein Riesling Auslese
A wonderful composition of mellow apple, ripe gooseberries with honey and slate. Wahoo! Great stuff.
