The Riesling Feinherb fromWeingut Thorle is a beautifully poised off-dry style of Riesling with a bright yellow colour. The bouquet offers up scents of peaches and apples, limestone and a touch of wild yeasts. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with fine intensity of flavour, bright acidity, nice focus and a complex finish.
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.
This wine is 100% Riesling with a blend of parcels planted in and around the slopes of Saulheim on Limestone and loes soils. The grapes are harvested and left whole to macerate for 16hrs prior to pressing to accentuate the aromatic profile. Fermantation and ageing is in stainless steel.

On the nose the Manda Chuva frmo Heredade de Portocarro is very mineral-like with saline tinges and white fleshed fruits. The palate is imposing, assertive and has superb minerality. This complex white wine will continue to develop with a few years in bottle, but whilst young taking a sip is just like taking a dip in the Atlantic!
