A winemaker’s Sekt made from hand-picked Chardonnay grapes from the limestone rich Saulheim vineyards. The aromatic nose is gently lemony with real refinement and mixed in typical brioche. The palate is lively and crisp with savoury citrus character, and really good length and balance.. Tastes simply good!
Food Pairing: cheese, poultry, seafood.
The Thörle family owns excellent parcels in Saulheim’s Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyard sites in Rheinhessen with a large diversity of terroir. Since 2006, the fortunes of the wine estate have been in the hands of the next generation in the form of Johannes and Christoph Thörle, who manage the winery with innovative skill and set the estate’s focus more on the traditional varietals Riesling and Pinot Noir.
The vineyards are managed organically, and the domaine is being taken in a biodynamic direction. The Thörle brothers obtain their distinctive, mineral Riesling and delicate Pinot Noir from the characteristically calcareous limestone soils.
