91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the Drachenstein vineyard far above the village of Rüdesheim the 2013 Dragonstone is a more reductive and aromatic style of Riesling offering brilliant fruit aromas of white peach, pineapples, ripe apples, and lemons all mingling with a cool and slate-like aromatic background enhanced with herbs. Medium-bodied on the palate the wine starts sweet but the sweetness is directly absorbed by the mineral piquancy that characterizes the wine even more and takes it over the tongue into a salivating finish of great delicacy and elegance. This is pure and piq ...Read More »
From Johannes Leitz, the creative winemaker behind Dragonstone Riesling and EINS-ZWEI-DRY. From the winery's note: "This hearty, vigorous rosé with a Pinot Noir base has a range of bouquet that recalls strawberries, violets, raspberries and rhubarb. There is also a hint of lovage and sandalwood. A melting, gentle residual sweetness accompanies every sip. Serve well cooled! It goes well with wild onions in olive oil, air-dried ham, salami, parmesan and naturally a barbecue."
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Straw yellow in color, the freshly opened 2013 Rüdesheimer Riesling trocken shows a hint of burnt milk along with nutty flavors, ripe apples and Williams pears and a nice mineral undertone with lemon peel flavors. The wine opens gentle and quite creamy and develops a certain power and persistent mineral piquancy as well as a nice grip in the good finish. This is already a terroir-driven wine from Leitz's Rüdesheim vineyards and deserves the right handling. (SR)" (1/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Cask sample. A generous expression of ripe and yellow fruit is supported by plenty of ...Read More »
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bright, high-toned 2013 Rüdesheimer Magdalenenkreuz Spätlese needs a warm-up to show its character that intertwines apples, lemons and floral aromas with white peach and finest mineral aromas on the quite complex and lovely pure nose. Grown on a deep loess soil this Spätlese is luscious and libidinous, a romance if not a love affair for your palate. Medium-bodied and lighthearted, this is a very pure and piquant Riesling with a lovely, stimulating sappiness and a lingering as well as salivating salinity in the finish. Has this wine ever been so good ...Read More »
A wonderfully dry, but not mouth-searing style of Riesling for those who love the delicate attributes of the noble Riesling varietal but aren't keen on any residual sugar. Makes for a nice aperitif or to wash down grilled sausages and even matches deliciously with smoked fish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""We had healthy grapes until the end of the harvest in the Wassero vineyard, where 60% of the grapes come from," says Eva Fricke introducing her 2013 Kiedrich Riesling trocken whose rest is from the Sandgrub. The Wasseros is the cooler upper part of the famous Gräfenberg towards the forest and dominates the character of this medium-bodied, very mineral and pure if not ascetic wine which literally does not contain a single botrytis berry according to Eva. They all went into the Rheingau Riesling. Discreet on the nose the Kiedricher village Riesling is qui ...Read More »
Jancis Robinson: "Not your common-or-garden Kabinett, the Doosberg does not mind pairing the cool flavour of citrus fruit with a dash of quinine and a generous salty lick. Uncompromisingly dry and with a serious mineral contribution. (MS)" (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bright citrus colored, the 2013 Doosberg Kabinett trocken fermented in a 2400 liter Doppelstück and opens with a very subtle and fresh aroma of cool, bright fruit and discreet earthy notes. Light-bodied, this fresh and stimulating, salty Kabinett finishes with a lovely grip. (SR)" (1/2015)
This is an extraordinarily unique blend of Portugeiser, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir. It has a bright, fragrant nose, super creamy mousse with pretty strawberry fruit flavors accented by hint of lemon zest and a dry, refreshing finish. It is great on its own, but has the body to complement a variety of foods, making it an excellent and versatile choice for entertaining. Try it with grilled pork sausages!
If the label images of old men in powdered wigs seem a bit unusual, it's for good reason. History and winemaking tradition have a different meaning in the Rheingau than the rest of the world. Over 28 generations, the Graf von Schönborn family has operated the wine estate dating back to the year 1349. The estate owns and cultivates 50 hectates of vineyard in the Rheingau, one of only five wine regions in the world to be classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Riesling is almost exclusively planted, and 80 percent of the acreage is classified as first-... Read More »

Jancis Robinson: "The 101 is a composition of a number of Spreitzer sites, and with its off-dry expression of peach and grapefruit, delicious acidity and just a hint of pith and peel it is a near ideal introduction to the world of Riesling." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With 18 grams per liter of residual sugar the Rheingau Riesling 101 serves the classic off-dry style of Riesling. Sourced from three different top vineyards (Lenchen, Doosberg, Hendelberg) this bright yellow wine offers a high-toned, precise and piquant bouquet. Light-bodied, fresh and fruity, this is a lovely, quaffable Riesli ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Kabinett has a pale citrus color and opens very clear and fresh on the nose and represents a rather cool character. Light-bodied, stimulating, piquant and mineral on the palate the wine finishes with a nice grip. Lovely! (SR)" (1/2015)
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "The 2013 Rudesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling trocken Hinterhaus (now a Grosses Gewächs though it is not designated as such except of the bottle which wears the GG sign) has an intense yellow color and lovely concentrated aroma of fully ripe (and dried) white peaches and piquant Riesling berries along with flint stone flavors. It is a rich and full-bodied, powerful and intense yet frisky and elegant Riesling with a piquant fruit expression and a marked acidity as well as a fruit intense length quoting ripe yellow nectarines and peaches. Though it does stil ...Read More »
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Leitz's 2013 Rudesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling Terrassen from a small terrace vineyard above the Berg Schlossberg is classified as "VDP Grosse Lage" but not allowed – and never meant – to be presented as Grosses Gewächs because it is – analytically – not dry although it tastes dry much as it has every year since 2004. Picked from 70+-year-old vines on stony red slate and quartzite soils the must fermented to 12.5% of alcohol and 11.9 grams of residual sugar and presents itself as a full, juicy, medium-bodied and fruit intense Riesling with a live ...Read More »
Jancis Robinson: "Straw colour. Just a whiff of kerosene, indicating age, but not unpleasant. On the palate there is a nice touch of fruit, the petrol-like tangent kept well in check by just the right amount of acidity. Delicate style. Some complexity, probably at its best now. (MS)" (3/2011)
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Weil’s 2006 Kiedricher Turmberg Riesling Spatlese displays far more clarity, drive, and personality than this year’s generic Spatlese. Pear, apricot, yellow plum, and pineapple are accompanied by lily-like sweet floral and ethereally honeyed botrytis notes in the nose, and saturate the palate with pure fruit and honey. For all of its richness this has elegance and finishes with the salty, chalky mineral expressions one seeks in great Kiedrich Riesling. This beauty is worth cellaring for at least 10-12 years. (DS)" (10/2008)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Delicate floral nose offers yell ...Read More »

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Musky aromas of apricot pit, vanilla and oyster shell. The smoky, rich botrytis character gives the palate a candied-fruit aspect. Creamy and smoky, yet at the same time clear, precise and impressively long." (1/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Some nutty flavours on the nose – which is very clean and direct, vibrant even. Wonderfully clean, clear fruit. Glucose fix! 18.5/20 points." (7/2005)
