Winemaker Notes

The wine shows a pronounced bouquet of very ripe red and yellow fruits with exotic and slightly spicy notes with well-integrated acidity. The slatey minerality so typical of the Mosel adds further complexity.

This wine matches delicate foods excellently. Try this wine with veal, shellfish, roasted poultry or fish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Earth, smoke and slate contrast sweet, juicy bursts of white peach, raspberry and grapefruit in this spry kabinett. It's unctuously fruity yet zesty, finishing on a long, chalky mineral tone. While integrated and irresistible already, it's likely to maintain fresh appeal till at least 2025.

Dr. Thanisch  Winery Image

The wine-growing tradition of the Thanisch family can be traced back more than 350 years. In 1636, the name was mentioned for the first time in the registers of Bernkastel-Kues. The quality of the family´s wines soon extended their excellent reputation far beyond the Mosel valley.

Quality is still the standard of the Thanisch family estate. A great part of this quality is due to the Doctor Cellar which is hewn deep into the rocks beneath the vineyard. Here all Thanisch wines are matured in tradional old oak Fuder casks at a constant year-round temperature of 8 C (45 F). Recently, the family has invested heavily into modern technology, gentle handling of uncrushed grapes and cold, controlled fermentation. The estate is today owned by Margrit Mueller-Burggraef, a grand-daughter of Dr Hugo Thanisch.

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
