The 2019 Riesling Kabinett Oberhäuser Leistenberg is pure, precise and flinty on the coolish and stony nose. Juicy, precise and flinty on the palate, this is an elegant, crystalline, very intense and charmingly juicy Kabinett with a long and aromatic finish. Highly attractive as always. Tasted as a sample in Bremen, April 2020.

Helmut Dönnhoff believes that exceptional wines require exceptional vineyards and, as a result, the majority of their family vineyards are located on grand cru sites. An old name in the Nahe, the Dönnhoff vineyards have been built up over the past half century, from just four hectares when Helmut took over the family estates to 28 hectares today. In 2007, Helmut handed over the reins to his son, fourth generation Cornelius, who continues his father’s pursuit of vibrancy, purity and quality.

Riesling is king in the Nahe, making up 80% of the Dönnhoff vineyards, the balance being Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, and their aim is to reflect their wide variety of soils which range from classic slate and loam to volcanic derived soils like porphyry. This Oberhäuser Leistenberg comes from steep, slate-dominated slopes.

Pale with a green glint and a nose of very tight, almost chalky white stone fruit, some floral notes, rich and lightly peachy, creamy yet tight and restrained. On the palate juicily sweet with lovely balancing acidity, lots of delicious Riesling fruit, really racy and poised and again with this peachy note behind, deliciously fresh with a lightly creamy finish. Fabulous wine! Drink now or keep for any number of years…
