Wine & Spirits: Designated Best Buy, White Wine Value of the Month Feb 2018. "Dragonstone, or drachenstein in German, is the name of the vineyard, a steep slope of quartzite soils where the Rhine meets the Nahe. The 2016 tastes like summer, from dried grass and herbs to peaches and lemon-tree leaves, presenting it all with the warmth of the sun and the clarity of a bright blue sky. There’s nothing pushed about it: It just feels comfortable, balanced between richness and acidity, sweetness and mineral savor, holding those aspects with confidence and consistency." Feb 2018."

Importer: "Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. This is the wine that once was called Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, and it’s the wine David Schildknecht said was the best Riesling value in the world, which is because Johannes sells it to us for much less than it’s worth. For a larger production wine this receives the same care in the vineyards and cellar that every Leitz wine receives.""
