“Do you want to know one of the best values of the 2016 vintage? It is clearly the 2016 Riesling ‘Thanisch’.” – Wine Advocate

The Thanisch Estate Riesling Kabinett is one of those wines that makes you smile from ear to ear. Super clean and invigorating, it’s like a sudden refreshing downpour on a hot muggy day, everything just seems brighter and more alive afterwards. This lush and mouth-watering white wine has a touch of sweetness and elegant tropical fruit, lime, green apple and something of the wildflower meadows in summer. Pair this with spicy food, picnics, tacos, Japanese unagi, smoked salmon, grilled sausages and any dish accompanied by apple sauce.

Katharina and her husband Dr Hugo Thanisch ran this estate together until the doctor’s untimely death in 1895, which left Katharina with three children and a winery to run. The winery name was changed to Weingut Wwe Dr H Thanisch to include the abbreviation of “Witwe” meaning widow. The Pioneering Katharina was one of the founding members of the VDP, an organisation of Germany’s top wine producers who work to more stringent rules than those set down in the country’s wine law. The winery has passed down through the women of the family ever since. Based in the picturesque town of Bernkastel-Kues, home to some of the steepest and most jaw-droppingly beautiful vineyards on Earth, this welcoming and vegan-friendly estate is now run by Sofia and her daughters Juliane and Christina. Although on paper their nine hectares of vineyards may sound modest, they are situated in some of the Mosel Valley’s prime locations.
