One of our go-to Kabinetts, the wines from Thanisch, are magical, made by Maximilian F.W. Ferger, a smart winemaker working with some of Mosel's best vineyards. The 'Doctor' Vineyard, named after an English king, claimed he was cured by the wine the vineyard produced, stating, "the wine was the true doctor!" The vines from this vineyard are the oldest in the Mosel area, reaching over 200 years old. Berncasteler Doctor is typically very concentrated, with an intense flinty minerality, white-fleshed fruits, flower blossoms, herbal, and hay nuances. The palate has a gentle sweetness, and like many top-notch Rieslings, the sweetness does not dominate the palate thanks to an incredible laser-focused acidity. This very impressive juice that will linger on the palate for minutes and keep you coming back for more. An astonishingly good wine that captures all the magic from the middle Mosel, and 2019 will be sensational.
