Dr H Thanisch Berncasteler Doctor Riesling Spätlese

The Doctor is the legendary epicentre of viticulture on the steep slopes behind the village of Berncasteler. The 2010 Spätlese is a highlight of Thanisch for its captivating tightwalk between succulent, generous baked apple and preserved lemon fruit and its taut acidity and slatey structure. It pulls off this stunt effortlessly, set off with the signature spice of this great site. Only small volumes make it to our shores. Try Prince Wine Store ($75).
