In the tiny village of Saulheim in the Rheinhessen, the Thorle brothers are making some of the best Riesling and Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir) to come out of Germany today. They are serious about what they do and aim to make Pinot Noir that can challenge the very best of Burgundy. The reason they can do that is that unlike many other German wine regions, in their part of the Rheinhessen they have limestone soils - similar to Burgundy. This is a wine of surprising ripeness and concentration with elegance and longevity. Stunning.
Grape variety: Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir)
Winegrowing method: Organic
