Winemaker 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

Terlano, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
2006 Muller Thurgau
In Terlano, the wine-making tradition dates back more than 2000 years. Mild microclimatic conditions give the wines certain unique characteristics, thus adding a special flavor to them.

Terlano’s unique position at the foot of Mount Tschöggel is a key to the development of the vineyards. The southfacing slopes are ideal for grape growing. The porphyry rocks accumulate warmth and the porous soil allows the water to drain, keeping the soil dry around the roots of the wines.

Trentino-Alto Adige

View all wine

A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino. Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of large volumes of wine made from non-native grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio produced here, and Merlot is common as well.

The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) is more focused on smaller-scale viticulture, and greater value is placed on local varieties, though international varieties are widely planted as well. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, and others. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot Grigio in Italy is made here.

Muller Thurgau

View all wine

Müller-Thurgau is a white grape variety created by Hermann Müller in the Swiss Canton of Thurgau in 1882. He crossed Riesling with the table grape, Madeleine Royale with the goal of making a delightful drinking wine from a vine easier to grow than Riesling. When done right Müller-Thurgau is full-bodied with floral aromatics. It has a refreshing, ripe peach character that balances a crunchy, green phenolic quality. Müller-Thurgau makes white wine in Germany, Austria, Northern Italy, Hungary, England, Australia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, New Zealand, the United States and Japan. While some of its best examples actually come from the Alto Adige region of Italy, it is still the second most widely planted white grape in Germany second to Riesling. Worldwide, it is one of the most widely planted of the new breeds created since the 19th century.
