Dr. H. Thanisch Estate Riesling Qba 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit sulfury on opening, this shows a touch of papaya on the nose with slightly soapy floral aromas and hint of pine nuts and lemon. Quite dry for a Feinherb with no real sweetness and just the faintest suggestion of added body from the sugar. It's a nice wine, not particularly fruity, with light lime and lemon flavors over fine dried herb and mineral notes that gain a little peachy aromatic tone on the back end and through the long, finely focused and slightly salty, mineral-driven finish. I rather like this; it’s refreshing, more aromatic in the mouth than flavorful, and shows excellent restraint. 87pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
