2021 Thorle Kalk & Kreide


The Cuvée for Kalk & Kreide combines Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grapes from the best vineyard plots in Saulheim.

The idea here was to create as natural a "white Burgundy" as possible with a long, full yeast, storage and minimal addition of sulphur.

"Strong nose of butterscotch, smoke, citrus fruits and white almonds. Cool and dense in the mouth, almost plump, the strong acidity provides a great framework for a very long wine experience. Despite its youth, it is already wonderful to enjoy!" - falstaff Wine Guide, 92+ Points

"I love the interplay of fresh nut and brioche character with creaminess and lemony freshness in this revolutionary dry white for the Rheinhessen region. The kind of structure you expect from a good white Burgundy. Lovely harmony at the silky finish. The first vintage of this wine. A cuvee of 55% chardonnay and 45% Weissburgunder that was matured for 9 months sur lie. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." - JamesSuckling.com, 92 Points

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.
