Weingut Thörle – Silvaner ‘Probstey’ 2017

Often herbal and a bit green in nature, Silvaner is a much maligned grape. Yet when planted at the best vineyard sites on limestone and chalk, it seems to blossom into something perfumed and quite fruity, redolent of peaches and fresh pears. Characteristic herb notes are fresh and nuanced, highlighted against brisk citrus and apple flavours and a silken supple mouthfeel. Mineral, perhaps even crystalline, in style this elegant bottling showcases also pristine grapefruit and tangerine flavors. It’s full-bodied yet silky, uplifted by a swathe of freshly cut grass and mint that lingers long on the finish.

Weingut Thörle

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.
