    The Rheingau, a south-facing slab of vineyards on slopes leading down to the Rhine, protected from chill winds by the Taunus mountains to the immediate north, is for many Germany’s noblest wine region.  It is here in the Rüdesheim mountains that the Leitz family has been growing grapes since 1744.  Their vineyards cover 40 hectares, 36 of them in Rüdesheim and 4 in Geisenheim.  Riesling (as an aside always voted the nobliest grape variety by top sommeliers) with its relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality, stone fruit, citrus, spice and floral notes, is their premier wine.

    The Magic Mountain Riesling is from young vines selected from Leitz’s very finest and steepest  vineyards.  The nose is fresh and pure with lemon zest, exotic fruit and spicy notes.  It’s has a delicate body with a slight creaminess and a wonderfully long finish.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
