The estate has a long tradition, dating back to 1636. Sofia Thanisch, currently at the helm represents the eleventh generation of this remarkable family. She is the fourth woman overseeing the estate. The 100% Riesling vineyards are ungrafted, the wines fermented traditionally in stainless steel, with indigenous yeasts, all to produce an enticing marriage of very pure fruit and slate minerality. The Doctor vineyard is celebrated all over the world
"The Doctor Auslese radiates an amber-gold shimmer. Wet-stone mineral notes and slate greet you on the nose. The palate is surprisingly delicate and precise for what is, after all, the high must-weight flagship of the estate. A deft but insistent sense of mineral-driven weight pervades the palate, complementing the spiced apricot and crystallised lime fruit, through to the long, focused finish."
