NOSE: medium-light petrol; slightly honeyed, with light fruit flavors; nectarine is the only specific fruit flavor that stood-out to me; medium+ expressiveness.
BODY: medium pale yellow color; no spritz; medium-full bodied.
TASTE: zippy acidity, and plenty of it; lots of mineral; pear; hint of canvas tent; 8% alc. not noticeable; Kabinett+ for sweetness. Yet another fantastic 2015 German Riesling! Gut impression score: 92 – 94. Drink Now – 2030.
This is my first go with a Thanisch, as well. It has become exceedingly obvious to me that I have a major crush on 2015 German Rieslings — to the extent that I probably love wines in that vintage that I wouldn’t otherwise love. Just as an FYI.
Along with Schloss Johannisberg, considered the most underachieving “great” vineyard site (and producer) in Germany. I’ve had some great bottles from them over the years, I thought their '83s were delicious - and a 1937 Icewein tasted in the mid 1980s is still stuck in my brain as one of the greatest sweet wines I have ever tasted from Germany.
