Weingut Leitz – Germany
Eins-Zwei-Dry Rosé is a fresh and fruity rosé wine made from 100% Pinot Noir – or Spätburgunder, which is the local name for Pinot Noir. The grapes come from fields around Geisenheim, Hattenheim and Erbach in the Rheingau. Although the area is primarily known for Riesling, world-class Pinot Noir is also grown – and it certainly works in rosé form too!
Colour: Pale pink.
Scent: Attractive scent of wild strawberries, rose hips and raspberries.
Tasting notes: Round and juicy, with a fresh acidity and notes of red fruit. A sure summer hit!
Serving suggestions: Enjoy chilled as an aperitif or with fresh salads.
Johannes Leitz took over the family winery from his father in 1999, having been in charge of the winemaking since 1985. Under Johannes’ ownership, Leitz has only gone one way – up! The quality has increased from good to world class and they have managed to expand the fields with some of the best parcels around the town of Rüdesheim.
The hillside west of and immediately around Rüdesheim is one of the most magical terroirs in the entire world for the production of wines from the Riesling grape – and thus one of the most magical terroirs in the entire world for the production of white wine!
This is where we find, among others, the parcels Berg Schloßberg, Berg Rottland, Berg Roseneck and Berg Kaisersteinfels, all four of which enjoy the highest possible classification and recognition in Germany’s hierarchy.
