Flight I Votes Full Retail Price $
Dr. H. Thanisch Feinherb 2014
Deep golden color and powerful aroma of minerals, peaches, grapefruit and raspberry. It is blended with the Badstube Kabinett from the Dr. H. Thanisch estate to increase the quality and character of the wine but it is not a 100% Estate wine. It is a classic wine. An ideal match with Asian cuisine, particularly sweet & sour dishes or sushi. It will also match most delicately flavored poultry and seafood dishes.
2 $12.99
Dr. H. Thanisch Spatlese Trocken 2014
Clear and aromatic, very elegant and well balanced bouquet of ripe stone fruits and flinty aromas. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this is pure and mineral Mosel Riesling with lovely ripe and rich fruit, as well as a lingering purity and stimulating grip and tension giving minerality.
4 $19.99
Dr H. Thanisch Bernkasteler Doctor Kabinett 2013
This wine is extremely complex with a tremendous aging potential. Aroma of hot stones, dark currant and nectarine flavors supported by a lively acidity. Rich and juicy on the finish, offering notes of white chocolate and spice. The favorite of this Flight.
