The Thanisch estate dates back to 1650 and thrives today under the direction of Sofia Thanisch. The slatey Badstaube vineyard rises steeply behind the town of Bernkastel on the picturesque Mosel Valley. The old, un-grafted Riesling vines yield one of the greatest white wines of Germany. This dry, floral Riesling has enticing mineral character with melon, pear and citrus flavours. It is supremely elegant, well balanced with naturally low alcohol.
