DÖNNHOFF Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

(Nahe, Germany) $26

Dönnhoff is, without question, the greatest estate in the Nahe. A visit with Helmut Dönnhoff and his son Cornelius a few years ago left me convinced that their wines are masterpieces of laser-like precision and quivering energy. The minerality in the wines comes across with near atomic density. This kabinett, from the Leistenberg vineyard in the town of Oberhäusen, is one of their simplest, least expensive wines, and yet it moves on the palate in long wavelengths of deliciousness. If you like taut, fresh wines that are light in body but massive in flavor, this is for you.  (9% abv)
