2017 Thorle Saulheim Spätburgunder Kalkstein


The local wines represent the strictest hand selection during the harvest and grow in the top limestone locations in Saulheim. Yields are at a very low level of around 40 to 55 hl/ha. 

The grapes were harvested by hand with an optimal ratio of aroma, acidity and ripeness. The time of harvest is particularly crucial for Pinot Noir. 

This extract-rich Pinot Noir, fermented spontaneously on the mash over 20 days, was stored for almost 2 years in high-quality French barrels (1/3 new and 2/3 older).

“Plenty of candied redcurrants and strawberries on this one, as well as orange and lemon tart. The full-bodied palate has real depth and chewy-tannin detail, which makes this a structured pinot noir that will need a few years to soften. Long but elegant on the finish.” - 95 Points, JamesSuckling.com

Thörle Weingut

We could attempt to paraphrase the words of Christoph & Johannes Thörle, but they say it best themselves, as each of their wines and their production involve “the highest quality standards, precision and perfection”.

Their different vineyard sites, across Saulheim (Reinhessen, Germany), are on some of the best limestone bases around. This gives each of the wines a wonderfully mineral character that is further developed and enhanced in the winery.
