Weingut Jurgen Leiner Pfalz Riesling Trocken 2020
This crisp, zesty, flavorsome dry Riesling comes from rolling hillside vineyards in the southern Pfalz around Ilbesheim. Most of the soils are loam mixed with a top layer of loess – a decomposed calcium-rich dust deposited from ancient glaciers. The wine was vinified in steel and offers 7+ grams of acidity and a very slim 4g/l RS. It’s practically bone-dry, but the fruit tastes super-ripe thanks to a vintage of generous Pfalz sunshine. Incredible quality, especially for a wine that’s certified biodynamic and all estate-grown.
