2013 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett, Dönnhoff, Nahe

Meaning ‘perform’ or ‘achieve’, the German word ‘Leisten’ perfectly describes this superb Kabinett. Fitting, therefore, that the vineyard is the ‘Leistenberg’, a vineyard blessed with 100% slate soils, retaining heat and allowing for a long, slow ripening period. With elegant minerality and fruit that builds up in delicate layers, the wine leaves you with an amazingly fresh, surprisingly dry, and enthrallingly lingering finish.

2013 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett, Dönnhoff, Nahe
Weingut Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff are based in the Nahe region of Germany, noted for its diverse soils, which are beautifully expressed in Dönnhoff’s single vineyard wines. The family winery has existed since the mid-18th century, but has reached its highest level under Helmut Dönnhoff, at the helm since 1971. Dönnhoff’s wines bear the standard for the Nahe, so often overshadowed by Mosel and Rheingau.
