Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett #04 2018, 0.75L

Region: Oberhäusen, Nahe Germany
Varietal: Riesling
Score: .IN
Review: “In ancient times, Leistenberg was the top site of Oberhausen. “Brücke” didn’t yet exist; the vineyard was part of Niederhäuser Hermannsberg, and Helmut hadn’t begun to acquire his necklace of Grand Crus in Niederhausen, Schlossböckelheim and Norheim. Though its exposure is less than perfect (southeast rather than due south), this is favorable in the modern climate era, as it permits longer hang-time, which enables wines like these Kabinetts to be made, and to be outstanding. I sense my old friend Helmut was feeling wistful about Leistenberg, as though it was the child who doesn’t get enough attention. Often I feel, do I need Dönnhoff’s wines to be better than this? This ’18 is like lace curtains of spindrift, as if it were snowing the little crystals from the pears.”
