About

Product Description:

"While I have over the past few vintages enjoyed following the renaissance of this venerable estate, which celebrated its 375th anniversary last year, the 2012s are perhaps the finest rieslings Sofia Thanisch-Spier and her technical director Olaf Kaufmann have bottled in recent memory. In its category, the kabinett is one of the finest wines of the vintage, but the entire range expresses the depth and potential that riesling can achieve in an outstanding site when treated with such care." - Joel B. Payne, Vinous Media

"The legendary Berncasteler Doctor vineyard is located behind the village of Bernkastel and is one of the most famous vineyards in Germany. This 100% steep site with a South-South West orientation consists of medium deep, stony loamy weathered argillaceous schist.

In the nose aromas of white peaches and pink grapefruit, as well as the for the Doctor typical smokiness. Very crisp and elegant with a herbal touch and an expressive minerality." - Winery
