Müller Thurgau

2020

  • Tasting notes

    Grown in cool, high-elevated vineyards, this delicately aromatic, early-ripening white variety has become an Alto Adige speciality. This wine reveals much of its Riesling parentage: pale yellow in colour, tinged with green nuances; fresh, flowery and gently aromatic on the nose, with a discreet hint of elderflower mingled with peach and Muscat; pleasantly citrusy and crisp on the palate.

    Cellaring potential: 2 – 3 years.

  • Food Combination

    It is an excellent aperitif and a superb partner to fresh green salad with passion fruit dressing, gently spiced Thai dishes, deep-fried fish, prawn salad and shellfish.

    Serve lightly chilled: 10 – 12° C.
