Tasting note Thörle Rheinhessen Grauburgunder
Fragrant dry white wine with nuances of ripe yellow fruit, some anise and flowers. The taste is fresh and juicy and ends in a balanced finish with a persistent aftertaste.
The star of the Thörle brothers is rising. In 2006 they took over the parental wine estate, where their ancestors made wine since the 17th century. They focus on Riesling, Silvaner and Burgundy Grauburgunder, Weissburgunder and Spätburgunder, because they believe that these grapes are best suited to the limestone-rich soils of Saulheim.
Because the brothers want to make authentic wines that reflect their origins, they pay a lot of attention to the vineyards. They keep the yields low and they harvest the wines by hand so that they can make a thorough selection. In the basement the motto is 'Kontrolliertes Nichtstun'. Fermentation is spontaneous with wild yeasts and the wines are given plenty of time for fermentation and maturation.
The grapes for the Grauburgunder are lightly bruised after the manual harvest and stay with the juice for around twelve hours. After the peeling, a six-week fermentation follows in predominantly stainless steel tanks and a small proportion of wooden barrels. Finally, the wine ripens for four months in the yeasts.
The result is a wonderfully creamy, but also fresh, salty, mineral Grauburgunder. Nice as an aperitif for lovers of milder wines, also delicious with light starters or soft cheeses.
