Dr. H. Thanisch Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spätlese 2017

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.
