Dr. H. Thanisch Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spätlese

The Weingut Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch, Erben Thanisch Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spätlese vineyard is named after the historic communal bathhouses - public bathing having been imported by returning crusaders. The soil here, fine slate, makes for wines with racy acidity and long ageing potential. The Badstube vineyards lie astride the town’s most famous vineyard, the Berncasteler Doctor. This includes parcels which the Thanisch have owned for 200 years. Bright lemony zest on the nose, with cheese straw notes. The palate is soft and pliant, with an overt fruit-drive, underpinned by a refined sense of power and a notion of texture. Beautifully harmonious, this is a pick. The mark of this wine’s quality is that the dialled-up body and volume does not detract one iota from the nuanced minerality at its core. Stunning clarity of expression.

Delivery Times

We aim to to have your delivery with you within 5-7 working days of receiving your order, but often it can be much sooner. If you need your order by a certain date please get in touch and we'll do our best to get it to you as required.


Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
