TN: 2015 Weingut Josef Leitz - Rüdesheimer Riesling trocken (Germany, Rheingau)

2015 Weingut Josef Leitz Rüdesheim Riesling trocken - Germany, Rheingau (2/3/2019)
– wine opened approx. one hour before tasting (screwcap) –
– tasted non-blind on Days 1 and 2 –

NOSE: surprising hint of petrol, which I normally would expect from a wine this young; very powdery; lychee and papaya.

BODY: striking green-yellow color; medium-light bodied.

TASTE: salty; medium-high to high acidity; dry. No fall-off on Day 2, when it’s still salty with high acidity and light to medium-light petrol note. Absurdly good deal at $12 — I went back to the store and bought all remaining bottles. gut impression score: high 80s. Drink Now and over next few years.

I tasted this a few weeks ago, I agree at $12 you should buy as many as you can.
