"I feel this wine lacks the acidity needed to balance its conspicuous sweetness. While pleasant as a desert, I probably wouldn’t enjoy it that much in another context. Keep in mind that I tend towards dry, acidic whites. Great for somebody that likes sweet stuff."

90 points ""This contrasts crisp, cool fruit flavors with the earthy, broadly aromatic profile typical of the Rheingau. It's focused and cleanly defined, and as one taster said, 'it overdelivers for the category,' showing an unusual sophistication for an entry-level wine." Universally regarded as one of the three rising stars of the new generation of Rheingauers (with Künstler and Weil). Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. This is the wine that once was called Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, and it’s the wine David Schildknecht said was the best Riesling value in the world, which is because Johannes sells it to us for much less than it’s worth. For a large-production wine this receives the same care in the vineyards and cellar that every Leitz wine receives."
