2021 Silvaner Probstey, Weingut Thörle

2021 Silvaner Probstey, Weingut Thörle

Ref: THOR210
White  |  Still  |  13% ABV

The estate of Thörle is based in Saulheim in the Rheinhesson and their recent Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder in German) vintages have been proclaimed as some of the finest reds produced in the country. Thörle has been run by brothers Johannes and Christoph since 2006. They work organically and are moving towards biodynamic culture. And, of course, besides Pinot Noir the brothers also grow Riesling. Yet this is Riesling from limestone: an altogether different and more Burgundian prospect to wines from elsewhere in Germany that might be grown on slate or loam.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"The 2021 Saulheimer Probstey Silvaner opens with a clear and fascinating, deep, intense and complex, very elegant and balanced bouquet with notes of white fruits, bouquet garni and finessed oak notes. Round, lush and fresh on the palate, this is a vivacious and mouth-filling, rich and elegant Sylvaner with fine salinity and substantial character. Based on the small, aromatic berries of old vines rooting in a terroir of clayey marl, limestone and sand, this is an impressive white wine with serious substance, expression and terroir character. The grapes were crushed and macerated for 12 hours before the must fermented with indigenous yeasts in traditional stücks (1,200 liters) for 10 months without racking. Tasted as a sample in August 2022. To be released in September this year. This is a great gastronomic wine that matches everything Chablis could have done too. 12.5% stated alcohol.Stephan Reinhardt

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
