Müller Thurgau is a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royal. The vineyards are found solely at elevations between 750 and 900 m a.s.l.. Especially when nearing ripeness of the grapes, there are very large temperature swings between day and night. This gives the wine its distinctively fruity/spicy aroma of yellow peaches, mountain herbs and nutmeg. The peppermint-fresh acidity is harmoniously interwoven with the fruity body. This elegant, fruity mountain wine is perfect with flavorful first courses or as an aperitif or with beautiful fish dinners.

Founded in 1900, Cantina Kurtatsch is a farmer-based cooperative in the town of Kurtatsch where out of 2000 inhabitants, 160 families are members/growers. Their collective goal of top quality, authentic wine is evident here, and the taste of Italian mountain sunshine is enthralling. Kurtatsch produces wines full of character, using sustainable methods, which best mirror their terroir – their varying origins – in the best possible way. Family-oriented and down-to-earth, the company strives every day to be the best they can be to express the region and honor its history.

The 2019 Müller Thurgau bursts from the glass with masses of smoky minerals, sea air, wild savory herbs, dried peach and yellow flowers. There’s tremendous depth to its silky textures, which at times verge on oily, yet they are always perfectly fresh and vibrant, farmed by brisk acids with a salty twang. The palate aches for another sip through the long and tension-filled finale.
