90 points "Leitz’s 2007 Rudesheimer Klosterlay Riesling Kabinett exhibits a different sort of balance from many other vintages of this wine and from his “Dragonstone,” in that, at 10% alcohol, it is also noticeably drier. The nose alone receives more than your money’s worth out of this Riesling, with peaches, cherries, vanilla cream, clover and brown spices distinctively and memorably displayed. Subtle lemony citricity carries the flavors on the palate, and the finish here is as thought-provoking in its minerality as it is lusciously pure-fruited. It’s amazing to think that off-dry Kabinett (and in particular, wine with this sort of balance, capable of at least 5-7 years enjoyment) has been almost completely forsaken by so many Rheingau vintners, and to think what is consequently missing from the still trocken-fixated German public’s perception of this famous region’s many potential facets.
