Müller Thurgau is one of the most popular white wines produced on the South Tyrolean Wine Road.
Müller-Thurgau is a variety of white grape created by Hermann Müller from the Swiss Canton of Thurgau in 1882. It is a crossing of Riesling and Madeleine Royale. The Müller-Thurgau grape is medium/large-sized and yellowish-green in colour. It requires no particular climate or soil type. However, it prefers rather deep, fresh and not to dry soil and a good ventilation. Too cold winters (with less than -15°C) and various illnesses can harm its vines. Müller Thurgau grapes ripen relatively early and their cultivation can be very profitable.
Today, Müller Thurgau is a very popular mild white wine with a pleasant acidity level, fruity savours and a light aroma of nutmeg. It should be drunk within the first two or three years after its production and goes particularly well with light dishes like asparagus, cooked or roast fish and can of course also be served as an aperitif.
Serving temperature: 10 - 12°C
