2004 Leitz Rudesheimer Drachenstein Riesling QbA (Dragonstone)
On release this was almost painfully intense, as it has been the last 4 vintages (the 2005 is similar). Now with a year or so gone by from release the wine has clamed down considerably, with better sugar/acid balance, still prominent peach, apple and lime fruit and an emerging mineral base that had been hiding under a lot of baby fat. It's really starting to show the mark of the racy, classic 2004 vintage. Delicious stuff now, and a bargain for $10.99.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
