"The bouquet is a combination of a seductive vanilla aroma with touches of lemon, mint accents, mirabelle, mango, banana and black pepper. A subtly mingled fruity acidity makes for powerful accents on the palate. The Schlossberg is direct, tingling, invigorating and enduring. This Riesling is an excellent accompaniment to salmon and turbot with sautéed chicory, fried quail with young Savoy cabbage and curry, poussin with red pepper, roast pork with cumin, fennel and coriander." —winemaker
"Leitz's green-yellow 2013 Rudesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling Trocken Ehrenfels from the Ehrenfels parcel offers a precise, fresh, intense and elegant (though still somewhat yeasty) aroma of limes, leafs, grapefruit and dusty/flinty stones. Medium-bodied yet intense and long, this is a not too powerful, indeed very well-balanced and elegant Riesling for a long run but it does not hurt you if you taste this mineral-laced, piquant and stimulating salty wine right now. Just keep in mind that Riesling can shut down again soon and remains so for a couple of years before it starts its high-altitude flight." —Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
