The Müller-Thurgau variety is a Riesling and Madeleine Royale hybrid created in Geisenheim (Germany) at the end of the 19th century by the Swiss botanist Hermann Müller, who gave it this name because he came from the Thurgau canton. This grape variety prefers the elevated and sunny hillsides of the Valle Isarco featuring a thinly structured soil. The colder climate of these higher altitude areas, especially the fresh nights during grape ripening season, gives Müller Thurgau its typical freshness and the variegated bouquet to which it owes its fame.
Delicate processing and crushing are followed by temperature-controlled fermentation and ageing on fine lees in stainless steel tanks with a lack of malolactic fermentation.
The colour ranges from slightly greenish to straw yellow, with an intense bouquet of zesty citrus and elderflower. It is very refreshing on the palate, with a full and pleasant body and a lot of character. It is also slightly aromatic with hints of spice.
