What the Critics say
The 2017 Thanisch Riesling Kabinett opens with a very fine, delicate and crystalline nose of crushed and weathered slate intertwined with bright fruit and floral aromas. Round and charming on the palate, this is a lush, mouth-filling and fine-structured Kabinett bottled with 10.5% alcohol and 20 grams of residual sugar. This juicy and fruity Riesling is gorgeous to enjoy today, though you can easily cellar it for a decade or two.
The Thanisch family has cultivated wine continuously since the year 1636 and can look back on a history covering more than 375 years. The estate has been run as a family business for 11th generation, of which the last four generations were women. The boutique estate is 7 ha (16 acres) in size, including the most famous vineyard in Germany, the Berncasteler Doctor and the top vineyards Bernkasteler Badstube, Bernkasteler Lay and Bernkasteler Graben. All of the vineyards are planted with 100% Riesling vines, most of which are mature and on original rootstocks.
