Review: Dönnhoff – Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett (2012)

Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett from Dönnhoff

The Wine Review:

Description: An expressive nose that shows attractive fruits. A balanced fruit driven taste that also has a touch of minerals. Great length that ends with a tingling of acids.

Key Descriptions: Fresh Firm Citrus Blossom Lime,Melon,Nectarine Minerality

Notes from the winemaker: 

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!
