About Weingut Thörle
Christoph and his brother Johannes have worked together since 2006 when they left their jobs to take over the family domaine in Saulheim, a little village inland from Oppenheim and the mighty Rhine. The vineyards lie on a mixture of light clay, limestone red sandy loam and in places flint and schist. All vineyard management is now undertaken organically with a move to biodynamic imminent, a brave step given that a lot of producers still believe this to be akin to witchcraft. In the cellar, the work in the vineyard is continued by allowing natural ferments and minimal handling.
Aged in used oak barrel for 10 months, This Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir) has Violet and soft red fruit notes, with a touch of spice and gentle tannin. Juicy and fragrant, a classic Spatburgunder.
