Product Description:

"The Leistenberg vineyard lies in a small side valley of the Nahe just outside Oberhausen. Th e name is a double play on words. “Leisten ” means “achieve ” in German, and the Leistenberg perpetually lives up to its name. “Lei ” is also a regional word for slate, and these warm, decomposed clay slate soils and steep terraced hillsides provide ideal conditions for Riesling to thrive. The southeast-facing slope basks in the morning sun, which dries out any excess moisture and promotes healthy fruit. The afternoon sun is less powerful, nurturing a long ripening period and moderate alcohol levels." - Importer

"Clay slates dominate mainly the slopes around the Leistenberg. This dry black-gray slate is perfect for wonderfully elegant wines. Our characterful dry Rieslingevon of these soils are therefore named after this ancient rock." - Winery
