Weingut Leitz – Germany
Kirchenpfad is a “Grosse Lage” field in Rüdesheim, and the quality really shines through in this beautiful “off-dry” Kabinett from Weingut Leitz. It is made from 100% Riesling, has plenty of freshness and at the same time a residual sweetness that makes the wine a perfect match for spicy cuisine and dishes such as curry, chicken tikka, sushi, summer rolls and so on.
Aroma: Expressive scent of ripe apples and pears, lychee, papaya and mango.
Tasting notes: On the tongue, the wine shows a masterful balance between sweetness and acidity, resilient minerality and notes of apples and tropical fruit such as mango and passion fruit.
Serving suggestion: An exciting wine for sushi where the light sweetness plays nicely with flavors such as ginger, wasabi and the slightly sweet rice.
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.
