Donnhoff 2022 Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett 750ml

Grape: Riesling 

Region: Nahe, Germany

Winemaker notes: The Leistenberg vineyard lies in a small side valley of the Nahe next to Oberhausen. The terraced, steep slopes are made of decomposed gray clay slate. The hill faces southeast and the sun shines during the day to allow for a long ripening period. This is a perfect vineyard for wonderful Kabinett with high minerality and subtle elegance. This quality Riesling has well-defined, spicy fruit, and a wonderful balance between fine fruit sweetness and firm acidity.

Critical Acclaim: 

James Suckling 94 Points

Stand back as this riesling lightning strike arrives. Complex nose of dried flowers and summer meadows. Ripe and juicy, but also very elegant and crisp with stunning mineral freshness at the very long pointed finish. Delicious, but also excellent potential. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification.
