Winemaker

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.

Vineyard

Rottland is a steep, grey slate vineyard on the Rhine, just next to the town of Rüdesheim. Its warm location in the 'Lower Rheingau', with steep south-facing slopes, enables it to produce Riesling both intense and elegant. Schlossberg (Castle Hill) is a spectacular red slate vineyard next to the town. 

Awards

This won a Silver Medal at the 2008 International Wine Challenge 


Food Pairing

Incredible paired with trout, salmon or pork and cream sauces. It will also work equally well as a party wine, particularly for daytime given it's low alcohol percentage.
