Weingut Josef Leitz is located in Rüdesheim, at the western end of the Rheingau. As the German Wine Guide notes, “Few in the Rheingau make finer wines than Leitz.” This family estate is run by Johannes Leitz, who took over what was then a 2.6 hectare property in 1985, aged just 21, and grew it to 43 hectares. It was the Rheingau that “established Germany’s reputation for world class white wines” (Hugh Johnson) and Eins Zwei Dry is a wonderful modern ambassador for the region. Named with a refreshing Teutonic sense of fun, this tasty, dry Riesling is a light hearted, crisp, elegant white. With scents of apple, apricot and lime blossom, it’s very food friendly and particularly good with pan-fried fish or Waldorf salad, or simply on its own.
