2015 Donnhoff ‘Oberauser Leistenberg Kabinett’ Nahe Riesling
Helmut Donnhoff planted his vines on a small plot of land in 1971, acquiring more land and plantings over time. He and his son, Cornelius tend their vines and make the wines. They make some of the best Rieslings in the region. This is fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels. This is a Riesling with well-defined, spicy fruit, very elegant with a wonderful balance between fine fruit sweetness and firm acidity. The 40+ grams of residual sugar are almost fully eaten by the minerality and piquancy of this picture book Kabinett.
