Schlossberg Rieslings have finesse and are commonly mineral, delicate and earthy, with good acidity. They are Thörle’s most elegant wines.</p> <p>The Thörle family has been making wine at Saulheim in Germany's Rheinhessen region since the 16th century.</p> <p>Christoph Thörle and his brother Johannes have been running the estate since 2006.
