2007 Leitz Dragonstone Riesling

This Terry Thiese selection is a Qualitatswein from the Rheingau that I have always been a fan of. Weingut Josef Leitz is an amazing producer of Riesling and in my opinion makes the most exciting wines in the Rheingau. This wine has a ripe and sentious nose of peach, lychee nut, fresh apricot, and honey suckle. An amazingly balanced wine on the palate, this Riesling has a smooth texture and flavors of mandarin, peach nectar, honey suckle, and a very pronounced lychee fruit. The acidity is crisp and fresh and makes the wine very clean on the finish. This is a very simple effort but it's lovely and vibrant and will pair well with foods. 90 Points

Not every place in the middle east has terrorists looking to kill Americans.

The UAE for example, is a safe and welcoming place :)
