Product Description

Steep, southeast-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! The vines are 25 to 30 years old and yield about 50hl/ha. 100% selective hand harvest. 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.

Yum! Addictively good drinking, sweet yes, but zingy almost in fizzy acidity. Has good whiffs of green apple, fern, honeycomb, lemon juice. So vivacious! Nicely balanced, precise and refreshing, zingy and cool. Delicious wine here. 93 points The Wine Front

Maybe this isn't the most concentrated Riesling on planet wine, but the balance is so perfect that you don't think about sweetness or acidity. Yet, that's exactly what this wine is all about – an exact balance of the two. From organically grown grapes. Fair 'n Green certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 94 points jamessuckling.com

Year in, year out, Dönnhoff’s Leistenberg challenges for the title of Kabinett of the year. Never one to overpower the sensory perception, it teases with delicate delights of zesty citrus fruit, a gentle floral whisper and racy acidity to get the salivary glands contracting. 17.5/20 jancisrobinson.com
