Dr. H. Thanisch Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2014
|Brand||Dr. H. Thanisch|
A bouquet of mandarins and ripe yellow plums, with a hint of elder flower dominate the nose. Inviting spicy aromas with a pronounced flintyness and a well-integrated acidity create a memorable experience. Food Pairing: An ideal match with Asian cuisine, particularly sweet & sour dishes or sushi. It will also match most delicately flavored poultry and sea food dishes.
Bottled together with its 2015 successor in September 2016, the 2014 Berncasteler Doctor Riesling Spätlese trocken offers a clear, complex, elegant and nicely concentrated fruit aroma intermixed with noble sur-lie and flinty flavors. Full-bodied, rich, round and very elegant on the palate, this dry Doctor is lush and creamy but also very mineral and well structured, revealing remarkable finesse and freshness as well as some very nice bitters in the finish. This is a great Doctor Riesling from a difficult vintage. It was bottled with 12.5% alcohol and just 4.8 grams of residual sugar.
