It tastes firm and dry and has tremendous power, length and minerality. This wine has a hard-edged, apricot- scented nose that feels as sharp as a serrated knife. Very good length in the mouth with an intense note of salty-mineralic limestone. A very well-structured wine with balance.
Food Pairing: cheese, mushroom risotto, poultry.
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.
