Muller Thurgau

Muller Thurgau Wine Details
Price: $33.00 per bottle

Description: A very delicate wine with floral aromas of apple blossom and peach with a hint of spice. Light bodied in the mouth, citrus and melon flavors lead into a bright, refreshing finish. Serve this wine chilled as an apéritif with prosciutto wrapped melon, fruit, cheese or with spicy Asian food, and shellfish.

Varietal Definition
Muller-Thurgau:
Early ripening cross officially developed from Sylvaner and Riesling, but some authorities now contend was actually from two clonal varieties of Riesling. Produces a flowery, yet acidic white wine that bears a modest resemblance to the parent Riesling grapewine. Widely planted in Europe, New Zealand and some parts of the cooler Northern regions of N. America. Known as Rivaner in parts of Europe.
