Dr. H. Thanisch Riesling 2018
Exceptionally spry for a dry-style wine, this snappy Riesling offers fresh yellow apple flavor shaded by earthen touches of dried herb and struck flint. It's a spine-tingling, zesty sip cushioned by a touch of caramelized honey on the finish. Best now-2028.
Zesty lime and piquantly seed-tinged apple dominate the nose and palate. The finish is tangy and suitably kissed by wet stone and damp earth. This lacks the polish, poise, generous juiciness or transparency exhibited by several other wines in Thanisch's 2018 collection, but it certainly offers pleasure concomitant with its modest price.
Almost like water in color, this light white shows direct notes of lime and apple. Moderate finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made, 800 cases imported.
