This barely sweet, elegant Riesling is both rich and seductively light, featuring kirsch and lime fl
|Barely sweet, thereís lemon zest, spice and minerality followed by a delicate finish. Great balance and harmony between acid and residual sugar. .
From the highest altitude of Leitzís holdings.
Beautifully balanced. Fresh green apples all the way. Delicious example of what is to come from the 2011 vintage.- John C. 8/17/11
|We got a driving tour of the vineyards so Valerie and Julie could see them. As we were driving
through the Berg Roseneck (and as Julie was being nervous about the steepness and the drop out her window) we looked
up at even more steepness and terraces. ďThatís Drachenstein.Ē Thatís where Dragonstone comes from? Yup, right there.
Even after judicious D-ass, this wine is sportiní some torque. I think itís the best vintage ever (which pisses me off as thereís
less of it available) Ė at least apples-to-apples tasting in March. It has the crazy grip of the vintage, the thickness of fruit
and spearmint, plus the kirsch of the site. A really happy wine to drink now, though if past is prologue you can age it for
ten years and have a beauty on your hands. - Terry Theise
