Leitz Rudesheimer Schlossberg 2007
Spätlese style, meaning late harvest gives a fuller bodied style. Mango, banana and honey on the enticing nose. Rich, spicy tropical fruit flavors show a hint of botrytis and creamy depth. It's touch on the sweet side but nicely balanced and seductively long.
Johannes Leitz has taken his family estate in Rüdesheim from 3 hectares to 40, and from anonymity to celebrity. A fine example of modern German winemaking, he produces brilliant wines in both dry and sweeter styles. In 2011 he won the prestigious Gault Milau Wine Guide's accolade as Winemaker of the Year.
