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 and red sandy loam soils perfect for fresh, mineral wines.
Hölle is in a small, protected valley at 150-220m, with 35 year old, deep-rooted vines. This is a dry Riesling (1.8 g/l residual sugar). Very intense and precise with lovely pear, melon and citrus fruit. Really linear with a strong mineral core to it. Superb stuff, in a class of its own. 94/100
