'The 2015 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett displays a clear, intense and pretty vinous bouquet with very delicate smoky aromas and remarkably less sulfur notes than common Mosel Kabinetts (that normally are at 35 to 40 milligrams of free SO2). Thanisch's 2015 is a very delicate, round, lush and elegant but also complex Kabinett with nice purity, grip and lingering salinity. This is a really expressive Riesling with 8.5% alcohol and 66 grams of residual sugar. Drink: 2020-2030' (Apr17)
