The 2015 Leistenberg Kabinett is a bit more powerful in personality in this vintage than
is customarily the case for this wine at Weingut Dönnhoff. The deep and classy nose delivers a
blend of apple, white cherry, slate, a nice touch of wild yeasts and a topnote of spring flowers.
On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and nascently complex, with a good core, fine cut
and grip and a very long, succulent finish. This is not as filigreed as many of the Kabinetten that
I tasted from the vintage, but it is a beautifully proportioned wine of style and grace. 2016-2035.
