Grape - Riesling
Where - Rhinehessen, Germany
What - Weingut Thorle are a craft winery owned and run by brothers Christoph and Johannes. They work exclusively with small sustainable sites that adhere to organic practices and are world-renowned for creating some of the best natural wines coming out of Germany.
When it comes to expression, these guys nail it every vintage. They also ensure that the fruit used in the wines is of the best quality possible, harvested from vineyards planted on clay, limestone red sandy loam soils perfect for fresh, mineral wines. The Feinherb is an off-dry style of Riesling fermented in stainless steel using wild yeasts. The wine is then further aged in steel before bottling unfined, unfiltered and with minimal sulphites.
The result is an exceptional expression of German Riesling. In the glass it's a pale lemon colour offering big floral aromas. On the palate, it weighs in with a medium body and medium acidity; a real people pleaser. It offers spritzy notes of lime zest, steel, apricot, nectar and apple blossoms.
Fresh, spritzy, floral. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 12% ABV.
