Rockss and Fruit

    (Josef Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck) The nose was lovely with petroleum notes along with some candied lemons, minerals and pear. The palate was a "wake up!" Riesling with juicy acidity, lovely elegant texture, and great depth. Classic 2001 in that the acidity was there, it was a true spatlese and it had just devastating length. It was so perfect and ready to drink right now. Yes, there was still some acidity that lent the wine a big structure bit on the nose and palate we already were in secondary land which meant to me this was rarin' to go and fully in it's drinking window. I will let my final bottle rest for three more years just for the sake of science as I would love to check out this wine when it hits tertiary land.

    (Josef Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck Spatlese) Nose of lime blossoms, minerals, burnt orange rinds, kiwi, aloe. Very complex nose. Entry is silky, with beautiful floral elements, red fruits, lime zest on the finish and perfect balance. A sligh sweet green onion/celery thing on the finish. Perfectly integrated acids bring out even more fruit (tangerine) on the back end of the finish. Another brilliant 2001.
