Thörnicher Ritsch is one of the last original steep slopes in the Mosel. It is one of the oldest cultivated vineyard sites in the Mosel valley and one of the steepest vineyard sites in Europe. These steep, well drained slopes, made up of blue slate soils create sone of the finest expressions of Riesling in the Mosel Valley.

These poor, meager soils give a racy streak of fine minerality with light aromas quince paste, spiced poached pear, crisp yellow apple and citrus zest. A flicker of mineral nuance weaves and dances thoughout. The fine, restrained sweetness and the precise, pin-point acidity provide a dancing elegance.  Impeccably made in all components with plenty of mineral substance and depth. Finishes clean and refreshing.
