Tasting Notes

    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.

    Super sleek and super minerally with lovely, lemony freshness. Yet, this is neither sweet nor tart, rather elegant and very filigree. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold.

    Cool, calm and collected on the nose. Lovely subtlety and life here. The acidity nicely counterbalances the delicate fruit. Attractive dry finish, with that green-apple juiciness.

Producer

Helmut Dönnhoff

Dönnhoff is one the best producers in all of Germany and the estate is arguably the most famous outside of the Mosel valley. The family domaine dates from 1750 and is comprised of 28-hectares in the Nahe, a region located southeast of the Mosel. Its climate unexpectedly evokes the Mediterranean, and its soils are comparable to the Mosel with the addition of clay, though not as steep. The combination of these 2 elements seems to give the best of both worlds - the focus and minerality of the Mosel as well as the fleshy fruit of Germany's warmer regions. The vines have been passed on from father to son to grandson and now the fourth generation holds the reins. Cornelius Dönnhoff took over from his father Helmut in 2007 after 8 years of training. Cornelius continues his father's natural (and perfectionsit) winemaking philiopshy, producing wines of extraordinary power, concentration and complexity. Spellbinding and thought-provoking, they are worth discovering.

Region

Nahe

Nahe is located to the south east of the Mosel. Its climate unexpectedly evokes the Mediterranean, and its slate soils are comparable to the Mosel with the addition of clay, though not as steep. The combination of these two elements seems to give the best of both worlds - the focus and minerality of the Mosel as well as the fleshy fruit of Germany's warmer regions.
