'Fresh apple and pear on the nose and on the juicy, glossy palate of this relatively dry-tasting yet only 8.5 percent alcohol bottling are garlanded with honeysuckle and lily of the valley. It's another understated, impeccably balanced Thanisch effort from a challenging vintage. The luscious finish is impressively sustained. Drink: 2016-2024' (Nov16)
