Dönnhoff H. Riesling Kabinett Nahe Oberhäuser Leistenberg 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit indistinct though very well balanced, it’s fun to drink but slightly underwhelming and fading. Peak drinking window: 2008-2013.

H. Dönnhoff:
A Nahe estate - and one of the top performers. Not many estates outside the Mosel receive as much attention as those within it, but if there are any exceptions then perhaps Dönnhoff is one. The estate, which is over 12 hectares in size, has been in the Dönnhoff family since 1750, and is currently run by Helmut Dönnhoff.

A Nahe estate - and one of the top performers. Not many estates outside the Mosel receive as much attention as those within it, but if there are any exceptions then perhaps Dönnhoff is one. The estate, which is over 12 hectares in size, has been in the Dönnhoff family since 1750, and is currently run by Helmut Dönnhoff. The Dönnhoffs own vines in only the top vineyards of the Nahe Valley. These vineyards are sited in several nearby villages, namely Niederhäuser (Hermannshöhle), Oberhauser (Brucke), Schloßböckelheimer (Felsenberg and Kupfergrube), and Norheimer (Kirschheck and Dellchen). The vineyards are principally slate or volcanic soil, and are planted with Riesling and also some Burgundian varieties. Read less

Petrol and mineral on the nose with top notes of flint and dried strawberry. This is still quite tense with plenty of acidity balancing the modest sweetness. There’s a lightness here and a transparency to the fresh peach and white fruit-leaning mid-palate that finishes with lovely minerality and length. This is small-scaled but it is in perfect balance, with mineral and acid parrying the thrusts of sweet fruit. The sugar does linger a bit on the white peach finish. 87pts
