The Leistenberg vineyard lies in a small side valley of the Nahe just outside Oberhausen. The name is a double play on words. “Leisten ” means “achieve ” in German, and the Leistenberg perpetually lives up to its name. The hill faces southeast and the sun shines during the day to allow for a long ripening period.
This is a perfect vineyard for a traditional, precise Kabinett with high minerality and subtle elegance. This quality Riesling has well-defined, spicy fruit, slate aromatics and a wonderful balance between fine fruit sweetness and firm nuanced acidity.
Sustainable farming practices.
