2017 OBERHAUSER LEISTENBERG KABINETT, Dönnhoff. Nahe, Germany

Bin:  175

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.
Leistenberg, 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’.

Maturity 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.
