91 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "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. (Mar/Apr 2016)"

91 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "Coming from argillaceous shale soils, the 2015 Oberhäuser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett opens with a very clear and coolish, slightly flinty bouquet with white Riesling and some refreshing lemon flavors. Full-flavored and intense on the palate, this is a lovely, light-hearted, piquant and racy Riesling with intensity and persistency. The 40+ grams of residual sugar are almost fully eaten by the minerality and piquancy of this picture book Kabinett. (Dec 2016)"
