2008 Muhlenhof Müller-Thurgau Trocken

SKU #1054543

Sustainable, and committed to green winemaking, Mulenhof is an estate to watch in Germany's Rheinhessen. The estate's dry Muller Thurgau is intensely fruity but never over the top. Spicy, a bit smoky, with citrus and more tropical notes on the nose, the crisp finish brings in pink grapefruit and zinger ginger. Just the thing for smoked trout or salmon, this is also wonderful with sashimi.

This is a delight to drink on a warm afternoon. It is very crisp, but with a fruity citrous frame. Dry & completely refreshing.

Müller Thurgau, the grape, was named after a dude, last name of Müller, who crossed Silvaner and Riesling in a Swiss town called Thurgau back in the day (late 19th century). It is the second most widely planted grape in Germany. Up until fairly recently, it was the most planted grape in Germany. Most however, the vast majority in fact, goes into cheap, quaffing super market wines for the thirsty German masses (Blue Nun, anyone?). But there are a handful of wine producers making some compelling examples, most of which, interestingly, are in the north of Italy, not Germany. However, this wine from Schloss Mühlenhof in the Rhienhessen epitomizes everything I love about what this grape has to offer. The nose is super spicy, with floral/herbal notes and hints of everything from gardenia and acacia to desert sage and nori (that stuff they wrap sushi rolls in). Fresh, zesty acidity and a squeaky clean finish. If good Wachau Gruner Veltliner married Loire Valley Savignon Blanc and had a baby then baptized it Mosel Riesling, they could name her Schloss Mühlnhoff Müller Thurgau Troken! And for $11.99 it’s almost comical how inexpensive it is considering the bang for your buck. Proust!
Top Value! Drink from 2010 to 2013

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
