Weingut Borell Diehl Pfalz Muller Thurgau Trocken (1 Liter) 2019
Müller-Thurgau was created in Switzerland in the 19th century as a hardy, early-ripening grape for table wines. It is now the most widely grown grape in Germany. Borell-Diehl makes it in the classic style: fresh, crisp, limey, and ridiculously easy to drink. Modest alcohol with great acids and no oak (of course), it beats Pinot Grigio at its own game, offering great refreshment in a dry style but also the unique fruitiness of a cool climate aromatic grape.
For Thomas Diehl, winemaker and viticulture technician, wine is both an attitude of life and a passion. It's the engine of the farm, always running and somewhere between the cellar and the vineyard. If you're inspired by winemaker Annette's wine in a relaxed smile, then you've arrived in the winery's modern tasting rooms. Annette, together with daughter Katharina, is responsible for the dialogue between wine and connoisseurs. Georg, 27, is a technician for viticulture and oenology and together with Thomas the cellar master in the winery.

His wife Christin is a civil servant and takes care of the necessary care and structure. Katharina (24 years) completed an apprenticeship as an office clerk in a sparkling wine cellar and is a specialist in business administration.

Soon 90 times, Senior Adolf Borell accompanied the development of the wine on the vine and almost daily he gives new ideas on how to optimize the care of the vine. The good soul, cook and the resting pole is senior boss Cäcilia. In general, the dialogue between the generations at Borell-Diehls is very important. It is still important to preserve and pass on traditions - but also to let the fire blaze with new ideas.

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, following an ambition to make a delightful drinking wine from an easier-to-grow vine than Riesling. When done right, Müller-Thurgau is a full-bodied, floral white with a refreshing, crisp quality. Somm Secret—Worldwide, Müller-Thurgau is one of the most widely planted of the new breed of grapes created since the 19th century.
