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
