Tasting Notes

Müller-Thurgau is one of the most widely planted grapes in all of Germany. Bred as a cross between Riesling and Silvaner it is the brainchild of Doctor Herman Müller, who bred a grape with the delicious apricot, green apple and peach aromas of Riesling, and the early ripening of Silvaner.

Staff Pick Notes

WIP

The Müller-Thurgau grape is the daughter of Riesling, and this beautifully executed Garlider has inherited her delicate aromatics and crisp, refreshing nature. Subtle fruits such as underripe peach and melon, green apple, and lemon grace the nose, followed by gentle notes of grass, hay, and aromatic flowers. It is a crisp, saline, savory wine, yet it has a roundness on the palate reminiscent of a Pinot Grigio or Muscadet. This is the perfect wine to accompany charcuterie, flaky fish with lemon and herbs or to simply cleanse the palate and ease the soul after a long day.

Alto Adige

Comprising the northern half of the oft-conjoined Trentino/Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy, Alto-Adige is in fact its own entity with its own distinct style of winemaking. Situated on the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, the two autonomous regions were returned to Italy after World War I (hence why they are often lumped together). Alto-Adige retains great pride in its Germanic...
