Josef Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling Spätlese 2011


SKU 87070100114


In the opulent bouquet of the Roseneck mature, juicy pineapples mingle with creamy yellow mango, peach, the scent of roses, ample lemon and a spicy touch of green pepper. Thanks to the quality of its succulent-sweet fruity acidity the Riesling is very light on the palate, lemon-like touches of slate emerge, which underscore the glass clear fruity sweetness of this classic fine late vintage. This Riesling goes well with coconut milk chicken curry with lychee, chili, lime juice and lemon grass, but equally well with baked apple and custard, tarte tatin with pears or apples, and crème brûlée.

International Wine CellarPale golden-yellow. Exuberant floral aromas combine with persimmon and nut oil on the nose. The succulent tropical fruit flavors are enlivened by saline minerality. Offers excellent chewy depth, superb balance and a seductively charming finish. This impressive spatlese is among the vintage's best.
