FRUITY/AROMATIC WHITES

Fruity/aromatic - OBERHAUSER LEISTENBERG KABINETT, Donnhoff

2017 OBERHAUSER LEISTENBERG KABINETT, Dönnhoff. Nahe, Germany

Bin: 165
Alcohol Percentage: 9%
Area: The Nahe river may be less famous than the Rhine or Mosel, but its best wines are classically perfect Rieslings - an unmissable evocation of slatey minerality.
Liestenberg, to quote their website, is a "Steep, southeasterly facing slope with grey clay slate soil. The morning sun dries the grapes, keeping them healthy; while the afternoon sun is not so direct, allowing the grapes to ripen for a very long time without becoming overripe. A perfect vineyard for Kabinett wines!"
Grape Variety: 100% Riesling.
Producer: Helmut Dönnhoff is one of the greatest winemakers in Germany (and therefore the world). He makes dry, off-dry and fully sweet wines which all combine real concentration with beguiling delicacy. In 2005 he was 'Wine Personality of the Year' in Robert Parker's 'The Wine Advocate'.
Cellar Potential: Will keep for 10 years but no need to wait.
Old Bridge Rating: Perfect example of fresh, delicate, grapey, pure, charming, off-dry Riesling. Unfashionable but brilliant.
