Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

The Dönnhoff Leistenberg vineyard lies in a small side valley of the Nahe just outside Oberhausen. The 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. An ideal vineyard for Kabinett wines of high minerality and sophisticated elegance. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels the Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling is a traditional, precise Kabinett with delicate slate aromatics, nuanced finesse and spicy acidity.
