2016 Donnhoff Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett
From slate soils, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett offers a coolish, flinty and very precise bouquet with yellow paprika and crushed stone aromas. On the palate, this is a gorgeously lush, round and elegant Riesling with generous fruit and aromatic intensity. 9% alcohol.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate #235 (Mar 2018)
Bosc pear, lime, struck flint and wet stone on the nose anticipate the brightly juicy, snappy, strongly stone-inflected impression on a polished, buoyant palate. Here is an excellent example of density allied to levity and animation such as vintage 2016 is especially capable of delivering. This finishes with an impressive sense of energy and a striking, undulating interplay of fruit and mineral elements. It’s likely to follow in a line of Leistenberg Kabinetts that display stamina in bottle.
David Schildknecht - Vinous
A prototypical Kabinett with a sleek body, delicate peachy fruit and very fresh acidity. The mineral finish is long and filigree. Could be held for at least a decade, but it's so enticing now. Made from organic grapes and Fair'n Green certified. Screw cap.
