Wine Advocate 88 points - From the carbon slate of the southeast-facing Oberhauser Leistenberg, the 2014 Riesling Trocken Tonschiefer offers a lovely, clear and coolish stony slate bouquet. Round and light to medium-bodied, this silky-textured wine offers very juicy fruit combined with a stimulating salinity in the finish. Very good length. Very authentic and cool.  (Mar 2016)

The sloping vineyards of the Leistenberg are characterised predominantly by clay slate soils. This dry, blackish-grey slate is perfect for producing superbly elegant wines. Our characterful dry Riesling wines from these soils are therefore named after this ancient rock. Tonschiefer translates as clay slate.
