Another clever wine name from winemaker Johannes Leitz of Weingut Josef Leitz. His “Eins, Zwei, Dry” Riesling, which I reviewed earlier this year, was one of my favorite wines this year. Whereas the “Eins, Zwei, Dry” was dominated by apple and citrus, “Leitz Out” has lots of stone fruit – imagine ripe peaches and nectarines at the peak of summer. Add to that some lime, petrol, and slate and you have a terrific Riesling. Rich, ripe, and nearly full-bodied, the texture is a study of contrasts – soft lanolin and citrusy acidity. The lime and petrol are central to the clean, lingering, and slightly bitter finish. Though I think this is a wonderful wine, especially for the price, I would have preferred it to be a bit drier. But then again, there’s “Eins, Zwei, Dry” for that.
