Leitz Dragonstone

2004 Leitz Rudesheimer Drachenstein Riesling ($16) -- Rheingau, 8.5% alc. Terry Theise Estate Selection. Imported by Michael Skurnik Wines. Mark at "Uncorked" covered this wine during the holidays and the rep from Dayton dropped off a bottle to taste. My German is weak so the website didn't help much.

Wine Advocate gave it an 89 with an 8,000 case production. Cincinnati's own David Schildknecht reviewed the wine for Robert Parker.

What is amazing to me about this wine is the balance between the front-end residual sugar and the acidity on the back-end. I enjoyed and think that it is worth trying as an entry level German Riesling that is off-dry.
