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.
“The period of over-oaked German Pinot Noir has been replaced with a more elegant, fresher style. Good value Pinots are hard to find, but this entry-level wine from Thörle is exceptional. It’s focused with refreshing raspberry and damson fruit, and grippy tannins are nicely balanced on a meaty palate”. Decanter Magazine
