Donnhoff Riesling Kabinett Oberhauser Leistenberg 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2015 Leistenberg Kabinett is a bit more powerful in personality in this vintage than is customarily the case for this wine at Weingut Dönnhoff. The deep and classy nose delivers a blend of apple, white cherry, slate, a nice touch of wild yeasts and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and nascently complex, with a good core, fine cut and grip and a very long, succulent finish. This is not as filigreed as many of the Kabinetten that I tasted from the vintage, but it is a beautifully proportioned wine of style and grace. 2016-2035. (Mar/Apr 2016)

H. Dönnhoff:

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... Read more
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
