Straw with a emerald cast. Aromas of peaches in cream, melon, and green pineapple on the tree with a supple, dryish light-to-medium body and a tart green apple, nut and mineral finish. A delightful table wine that will be quite versatile.

Muller Thurgau

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Muller Thurgau is a dry white wine produced from the eponymous grape; medium-bodied, it is known for its aromatics and good acidity. Most versions are unoaked to highlight the tea leaf, melon and pear perfumes.

Muller Thurgau is most famous from Germany, where is is considered sort of a 'poor man's Riesling." It does indeed have some of the same flavors, but with less acidity, it does not have the structure to age as long as Riesling. Arguably the best examples are from the Alto Adige region in northern Italy; here a handful of producers craft deeply concentrated, highly aromatic examples of Muller Thurgau that can age for five to seven years and work beautifully at the dinner table with foods ranging from seafood risotto to Thai and fusion cuisine.
