Tasting Notes:
rated: April 4, 2008 , WS
93 points "93 points Wine Spectator Insider: "A Riesling of great clarity and balance. Peach, appleand mineral flavors mingle, while the bright acidity keeps it in check. It’s elegant and lingers nicely onthe finish." (12/06) According to importer Terry Theise: "CORE-LIST WINE. This is a luminous Riesling Ideal; serenely glowing; apple flesh and skin, a little fibrous sweet-leesy texture anchors what might have been too 'fruity'; talc aromas, and a subtle tamped-down minerality until the finish, which is stony, silky and texturous. Notwithstanding the Grand Crus coming up, this 'Magda' (Leitz’s own term for the tongue-twister) gives as much sensual pleasure as great Riesling can. SOS: 2 (8-24 years)" "
