Bottled in June of the year following the harvest, this Muller-Thurgau is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. It is colored straw yellow with greenish reflections; its nose is intense with a slight and typical tone of moss. Fresh, lively, and slightly aromatic on the palate, this wine makes a great aperitif or accompaniment to grilled fish.
"The 2008 Muller Thurgau is one of the more understated wines in the lineup. Sweet, perfumed aromatics lead to a mineral-infused core of fruit. The Muller Thurgau possesses terrific length and fine overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011. Kofererhof is located in Valle Isarco, one of the most privileged spots in Alto Adige for intensely focused, mineral-driven whites. Proprietor Gunther Kerschbaumer began estate-bottling his own wines with the 1995 vintage, and since then Kofererhof has emerged as one of Italy’s most exciting properties. Unfortunately only a few of the 2008s were in bottle as we went to press, but I hope to be able to taste the rest of the estate’s current releases in the near future."
