Leitz Dragonstone Riesling Kabinett 2016

Rheingau, GermanyThis wine used to go by the name Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, the vineyard name. Dragonstone is a bit easier to say (and spell) for international markets, and this fantastic value wine does well across North America. From quartzite soils and with time only in stainless, this is potent and focused, with eraser, broken stones, tangerine peel, pear skin. The solid swing of RS is countered by tight, juicy green apple acidity. Nice grip around the finish, making it friendly for food and solo sipping.Tasted: 27 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Producer: Weingut Josef LeitzDistributors: Stile Brands
