Winemaker's Notes

Muller Thurgau is a cross of Riesling and Sylvaner. Appreciated both for its amazing aromatics and unique flavors of peach and mango, this wine is fermented in stainless stell, which helps it maintain its fresh and appealing bouquet.

Pale yellow in appearance with a light aromatic bouquet of tropical fruit. Dry, round and medium bodied on the palate with flavors of mango and peach balanced by crisp acidity. It has a nice weight on the palate and reminiscent of a white Rhone blend but ends with a crisp finish.

"The 2006 Muller Thurgau possesses pretty notes of jasmine, minerals, smoke and earthiness that complement its honeyed ripe fruits. Made in a generous style, it offers excellent depth as well as an added level of complexity that has developed in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010. Cantina di Terlano is one of my favorite sources for value-priced wines in Alto Adige. The winery was founded over 100 years ago. Like many estates in the region, Terlano is a cooperative, yet the wines are first-class in every sense of the term."- Robert Parker
